SportsEvents Media Group has named the Wildwoods Convention Center  as a 2015 Readers’ Choice Award winner for Top Venue in New Jersey. The media group publishes SportsEvents Magazine, a publication that focuses on helping sports event planners.

Readers nominated destinations and sports venues that, in their opinion, displayed exemplary creativity, hospitality and professionalism. Nominations were collected throughout the year, and top picks were selected based on results from an online voting system.

The Wildwoods Boardwalk Basketball Classic was also named to the magazine’s list as a Sports Event to Watch in 2015.

“We are thrilled to be named a winner of two SportsEvents Magazine’s Readers Chice Awards and grateful to 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 premier sports destination venue,” says John Siciliano, executive director, Greater Wildwoods Tourism Improvement and Development Authority.
