For the 11th time since 1995 and the fifth straight year, the San Diego Convention Center (SDCC) has received the prestigious Facilities & Destinations Prime Site award, recognizing the center’s outstanding services, dedicated team and award-winning facility.
The annual awards, presented by the Facilities Meeting Group, publisher of Facilities &
Destinations, are voted on by the group’s readership of more than 29,000 industry professionals, including association and corporate meeting planners and executives, independent meeting planners and tradeshow managers.
“It is a true honor to be recognized by this wonderful group of industry professionals year after year,” said Carol Wallace, president and CEO, San Diego Convention Center Corp. “Providing top-tier service to our clients is a priority at our center and being recognized for it is a testament to our staff’s hard work and commitment to their clients.”
The award’s criteria for voting includes attractiveness and functionality of convention centers, technological capabilities, quality of staff, food and beverage operation, Internet access, size and quality of meeting space.
“By winning a Prime Site award, as the SDCC has done for each of the past five years, it is obvious its staff does a fine job of serving their clientele,” said Michael Caffin, associate publisher, Facilities & Destinations magazine.
