Plano Centre Earns ConventionSouth Magazine Readers’ Choice Award


Plano Centre is one of the premier meeting and convention facilities in north Texas and has been honored with the Readers’ Choice Award from the publishers and editors of ConventionSouth, the national multimedia resource for planning events in the South.

Plano Centre is among 175 meeting facilities, convention and visitor bureaus (CVBs), 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.

“We are proud to be recognized for the services Plano Centre provides our meetings guests,” said Plano Centre General Manager Mark Jarrell. “This honor is a testament to the comprehensive amenities and successful experiences our clients enjoy when conducting an event at our facility.”

This is the first Readers’ Choice Award for Plano Centre since the honor was created by the magazine in 2001. In 2013, ConventionSouth awarded Plano Centre a Green Meetings Approved certification.

The multi-purpose facility features more than 122,500 square feet of flexible function space that comfortably accommodates up to 5,000 people. The exhibition hall offers 21,600 square feet of column-free, completely carpeted exhibition space and a professional master stage. In addition, 17 different break-out rooms are available.

“ConventionSouth readers and fans have voted to decide the best meeting sites in the South, and it is no surprise to us that Plano Centre has been selected to receive our annual Readers’ Choice Award,” said ConventionSouth Publisher J. Talty O’Connor. “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 Plano Centre indeed displays the commitment to professionalism, creativity and service that they require.”

Plano Centre will be featured as an award recipient in the December 2014 Awards Issue of ConventionSouth magazine.
