|The Wildwoods Convention Center Named Winner of SportsEvents Magazine’s 2016 Readers’ Choice Award for Second Year in a Row|
| The Wildwoods, NJ – February 1, 2016 – The Wildwoods Convention Center was once again named as a 2016 Readers’ Choice Award winner by SportsEvents Media Group, publisher of SportsEvents Magazine, the leading industry publication focused exclusively on helping sports event planners produce excellent competitions in the United States. The venue also received this accolade in 2015.|
Sports event professionals were asked to nominate destinations and sports venues that they believe display exemplary creativity and professionalism toward the groups they host. Nominations were received from readers throughout the year, and the top picks were selected based on results from an online voting system. Winners are listed in the January 2016 issue of SportsEvents Magazine.
“We are pleased to once again be named a winner of SportsEvents Magazine's Readers Choice Awards and grateful to continually be recognized for the hard work and dedication of our Convention Center staff, along with all of our supporting partners, who have helped make the Wildwoods Convention Center a premiere sports destination venue,” said John Siciliano, executive director for the Greater Wildwoods Tourism Improvement and Development Authority (GWTIDA).
The Wildwoods Convention Center is a modern, 260,000-square-foot multi-use facility located directly on the Wildwood’s expansive beach offering spacious, flexible, innovative and inviting locations for indoor sporting events. The flexible indoor venue space lends itself to hosting all types of sporting events year-round and in any type of weather, with a particular emphasis on youth sports. The venue hosted nearly two dozen sporting events and tournaments in 2015 – ranging from youth wrestling, and basketball tournaments, to gymnastics, band and cheerleading competitions, to floor hockey and futsal soccer tournaments. In addition, the WWE World Wrestling Entertainment and the world famous Harlem Globetrotters also held their events in the center. The adjacent beach and ocean expand the venue’s offerings in a way that no other similar venue can – during the summer the sandy beaches are transformed into soccer, lacrosse and Frisbee tournament fields, and track and field venues.
