The Wildwoods Convention Center Awarded the 2021 Prime Site Award by Facilities & Destinations Magazine

The Wildwoods, NJ – June 14, 2021 – The Wildwoods Convention Center has recently been awarded the Facilities & Destinations magazine 2021 Prime Site Award. Nominated by readers of Facilities & Destinations, the Wildwoods Convention Center is being recognized for its implementation of COVID-19 safety measures and services to the community during the challenging times of the pandemic; as well as the positive experiences of event goers at the Convention Center prior to March 2020.

Extensive measures have been taken by the Wildwoods Convention Center staff to ensure a safe, comfortable and unforgettable experience for all who visit. To assure the safety of guests and employees, advanced sanitization protocols have been implemented, including sanitizing stations located in key traffic areas throughout the building. Also, one employee has been designated to sanitize the high-traffic areas throughout the building – door handles, window ledges and other highly populated areas.

Before and after all events, the Convention Center’s professional team deep cleans the areas with commercial grade disinfecting materials and sprays and restock all hand sanitized stations. The team maintain this during events to assure guests feel safe and comfortable and conduct the same level of deep cleaning immediately following the event.

“We are truly honored that the readers of Facilities & Destinations chose the Wildwoods Convention Center for the 2021 Prime Site Award,” said John Siciliano, Executive Director/CFO of the Greater Wildwoods Tourism Improvement and Development Authority (GWTIDA). “We are grateful to continually be recognized for the hard work and dedication of our Convention Center staff, along with all of our supporting partners, who have helped make the Wildwoods Convention Center a premier venue for conventions, meetings events, and more,” he continued.

The state-of-the-art Wildwoods Convention Center offers 260,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, including a 75,000-square-foot exhibit hall that can also be configurable into two 37,500-square-foot separate areas; a 7,500-seat concert arena for live shows; 30,000 square feet of lobby and pre-function space; 10 separate meeting rooms; state-of-the-art sound/lighting systems; and amazing ocean views from nearly every angle – not to mention a team of experienced support personnel and service professionals constantly at the ready to provide assistance every step of the way.
