Talk about a big win for the Sports Capital of Texas!

SportsEvents Media Group, the leading industry publication focused exclusively on helping sports event planners produce excellent competitions in the United States, announced that the Round Rock Convention & Visitors Bureau has been recognized as a 2019 Readers’ Choice Award winner.

Sports event professionals were asked to nominate destinations and sports venues that they believe display exemplary creativity and professionalism toward the youth and amateur sports groups they host. Nominations were received from readers and the top picks were selected based on results from an online voting system. A record number of votes were cast for the annual contest, with Round Rock winning by a landslide.

“The destinations and venues nominated for this year’s Readers’ Choice Awards are outstanding examples of how sports commissions and CVBs provide exemplary service to youth and amateur sporting events,” said Sherri Middleton, Managing Editor.

“It is my honor to recognize Round Rock Convention & Visitors Bureau as a 2019 Destination winner,” Middleton said.
