“The value in receiving this prestigious recognition is that it comes from the United States’ top meeting professionals who hold events in the South.

“Natchitoches is the perfect destination for small market meetings,” said Arlene Gould, Executive Director. “It offers a great opportunity for a change of pace and relaxing atmosphere while networking and conducting business.”

Natchitoches Area CVB is among 415 convention and visitor bureaus meeting facilities and hotels located across the South to receive this year’s Readers’ Choice Award. Throughout the year, meeting professionals nominated the meeting sites they believe provide exemplary service for group events.

The nominated sites are then compiled onto an online ballot where meeting professionals and fans are asked to vote for the best of the best. With over 8,000 voters participating in the selection process and the highest social media interaction to date, this has been the most successful and engaging year yet. Since creation in 2001, this is the fifth time that Natchitoches Area CVB has received the award, making it an even greater honor to present it with a 2021 Readers’ Choice Award.

Natchitoches Area CVB will be featured as an award recipient in the December 2021 Awards Issue of ConventionSouth magazine.
