Inn on the Lakes Is Honored With Convention South’s Annual Readers’ Choice Award

GULF SHORES, Ala. (Oct. 7, 2019)—It is with honor that the publishers and editors of ConventionSouth, the national multimedia resource for planning events in the South, present Inn on the Lakes with a 2019 Readers’ Choice Award.

“ConventionSouth readers and fans have voted to decide the best meeting sites in the South, and it is no surprise to us that Inn on the Lakes has been selected to receive our annual Readers’ Choice Award,” said ConventionSouth Senior Editor Marcia Bradford. “The value in receiving this prestigious recognition is that it comes from the United States’ top meeting professionals who hold events in the South. These planners demand the highest level of customer service and quality facilities, and they have contributed in determining that Inn on the Lakes indeed displays the commitment to professionalism, creativity and service that they require.”

Inn on the Lakes is among 337 convention and visitor bureaus (CVBs), meeting facilities and hotels located across the South to receive this year’s Readers’ Choice Award. Throughout the year, meeting professionals nominated the meeting sites they believe provide exemplary service for group events. The nominated sites are then compiled onto an online ballot where meeting professionals and fans are asked to vote for the best of the best. With over 7,000 voters participating in the selection process and the highest social media interaction to date, this has been the most successful and engaging year yet!

Since creation in 2001, this is the first time that Inn on the Lakes has received the award, making it an even greater honor to present it with a 2019 Readers’ Choice Award. Inn on the Lakes will be featured as an award recipient in the December 2019 Awards Issue of ConventionSouth magazine. This exciting issue will also showcase some of the most talented meeting professionals in the nation as ConventionSouth also presents planners with its annual “Meeting Professionals To Watch” designation. “Featuring peer advice and trade secrets from our Meeting Professionals to Watch in 2020, our Awards Issue is one of the most popular must-read resources within the meetings industry,” Bradford said. Celebrating over 35 years as a leading meeting planning resource, ConventionSouth magazine is based in Gulf Shores, Ala., and is distributed to more than 18,000 meeting professionals located across the country who book meetings held within the South, according to Bradford.

Delightfully Surprising Sebring

What comes to your mind when you think of visiting Florida? Is it the theme parks? Are you one who flocks to Fort Lauderdale or Miami and spend days just basking on the beach? What about the typical Floridian? Where do THEY head when it’s time to do something just a little bit different? I’m not certain if I am your “typical” Floridian (since I’m a transplant), but having been here only 13 years, my goal is to explore the hidden treasures that are just a road trip away, and since Sebring was just a couple hours away from my home on the East Coast….I figured I’d hop in the car and GO!
