Chicago Southland Convention and Visitors Bureau Honored in the SDM 2018 Readerís Choice Awards
6/14/2018
Chicago Southland Convention and Visitors Bureau was honored in the 2018 Reader’s Choice Awards announced by Sports Destination Management (SDM). The Chicago Southland was awarded Favorite Destination for Community Engagement as well as Favorite Destination for Accessibility. Sports Destination Management is the leading publication with the largest circulation of sports event planners and tournament directors in the sports tourism market.

Sports and tourism play a major role in bringing the Chicago Southland’s 63 communities together and the interaction results in a better quality of life. The Chicago Southland CVB recognizes this and prides itself on working with sports events from beginning to end. The Chicago Southland’s convenient proximity to downtown Chicago and access to several interstates just minutes from Midway and O’Hare International Airports, makes getting to and from events a breeze. Interstates 55, 57, 80, 94, 294 and 355 serve the Chicago Southland so it is easily reachable, no matter what direction an attendee is coming from.

Jim Garrett, President/CEO of the Chicago Southland CVB stated “Our region offers the best in accessibility, hospitality and our communities go out of their way to make people feel at home. We are a destination that is easy to access as well as being easy on the wallet.”

Information on the individual winners is detailed in a special feature published in the May/June 2018 issue of Sports Destination Management. The entire article with full details below can also be found online here.
