Ventura, CA, January 19, 2015 --( VenturaCountyWest (Camarillo, Oxnard and Ventura) received one of SportsEvents’ 2015 Readers’ Choice Awards. VenturaCountyWest was selected after a nomination process by SportsEvents readers who were asked to choose which locations in California provided a high standard of professionalism and quality service in hosting sports events. The Readers’ Choice Awards for all 50 states and Puerto Rico were announced January 9.

Each year, dozens of local, state and national sporting events take place in VenturaCountyWest including events for USA BMX, the National Softball Association, Western Surfing Association and the Ojai Tennis Tournament.

“VenturaCountyWest has an abundance of venues to host events for young players to adults,” says Rebekah Evans, executive director of the Ventura County Lodging Association, which markets VenturaCountyWest. “Our sports-friendly hotels have more than 4,000 rooms so sports planners and tournament directors know they can easily accommodate athletes and their families. This summer, VenturaCountyWest hotels will supply lodging for the 2015 Special Olympics.”

For the SportsEvents Readers Choice Awards, nominations were received from readers throughout the year, and the top picks were selected based on results from an online voting system.

“SportsEvents readers came out in force to nominate and then to vote for their favorite sports events destinations and the host organizations that represent them. Our team is proud to honor the nominees that received the most votes with a 2015 Readers’ Choice Award,” said Kristen McIntosh, SportsEvents editor.

“It is clear, based on our readers’ experiences that these award winners are willing to go above and beyond typical service levels to help sports event planners produce outstanding events that participants, their families and spectators will want to experience again and again. It is our privilege to announce their selection by sports event planners as among the best in the United States.”
