Rutherford Co. Convention & Visitors Bureau Wins Again



The publishers and editors of ConventionSouth, the national multimedia resource for planning events in the South, present Rutherford County Convention & Visitors Bureau with a 2020 Readers’ Choice Award.

“ConventionSouth readers and fans have voted to decide the best meeting sites in the South, and it is no surprise to us that Rutherford County Convention & Visitors Bureau has been selected to receive our annual Readers’ Choice Award,” said ConventionSouth Associate Publisher Ashleigh Osborne. “The value in receiving this prestigious recognition is that it comes from the United States’ top meeting professionals who hold events in the South. These planners demand the highest level of customer service and quality facilities, and they have contributed in determining that Rutherford County Convention & Visitors Bureau indeed displays the commitment to professionalism, creativity and service that they require.”

“We are honored to be recognized as one of the “Best Meeting Sites” in the South,” said Barbara Wolke, senior vice president of the Rutherford County Convention & Visitors Bureau.

“Our Convention & Visitors Bureau is considered a one-stop-shop for meeting planners from across the US and our goal is to provide the level of excellence and professionalism that guarantees the success of every conference that we host.”

Since creation in 2001, this is the 8th time that Rutherford County Convention & Visitors Bureau has received the award, making it an even greater honor to present it with a 2020 Readers’ Choice Award. Rutherford County Convention & Visitors Bureau will be featured as an award recipient in the December 2020 Awards Issue of ConventionSouth magazine.

“The Convention and Visitors Bureau continues to exceed expectations and deliver an experience that is envied around the country,” said Rutherford County Convention and Visitors Bureau Chair Travis Emore. “I am proud of all of their hard work.”.
