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. 

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  


After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.


Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.
