    Springfield Receives Readers' Choice Award... Again!

    Springfield Missouri Sports Commission and Springfield Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) are winners of the 2014 class of SportsEvents Media Group Readers’ Choice Awards! This is the third year in a row that the award has been won by the two groups. 

    “It was an honor to be nominated by our peers for the award and even a greater honor to receive the award from SportsEvents Magazine,” Lance Kettering, executive director of the Springfield Sports Commission said. 

    Sports event professionals are asked to name the sports commission, CVBs or sports events venues that they believe display exemplary creativity and professionalism toward the groups they host. Nominations are received from readers throughout the year, and the top picks are selected based on the results from an online voting system.

    Springfield CVB Executive Director Tracy Kimberlin added, “We do our best to provide excellent service to sports event planners and the Readers’ Choice Award tells us we’re doing a good job.“
