Las Cruces CVB wins SportEvent award


AMERICAS – The Las Cruces Convention and Visitors Bureau (LCCVB) in New Mexico has been awarded the SportsEvent Media Group 2015 Reader’s Choice Award.
SportEvent Magazine readers selected Las Cruces via online poll as one of their favourite sports destinations and the Las Cruces Convention and Visitors Bureau as one of the top sports events host organisations.

“I want to congratulate the city as a whole because it takes a community effort to attract these sports events to Las Cruces,” said LCCVB Executive director, Phil San Filippo. “We have some great people and partners who work behind the scenes providing important services for all of our events, they are the ‘backbone’ of our success.”

LCCVB has worked closely with the City’s Parks Department, Las Cruces Public School athletic facilities, hotels, and local/regional sports directors to plan and organise sports events in the city. In the past year, Las Cruces has hosted the Biggest Loser Run/walk, Ultimate Gladiator Dash and numerous United States Specialty Sports Association Championship events.
