Jason Rittenberry, CFE, the chief executive officer for PBIR attended the New Orleans conference to represent the venue. "On behalf of my entire staff in South Florida, I am truly honored to have Palm Beach International Raceway named among the best venues in the country, and I congratulate all the finalists and winners."

The other finalists in the category of stadiums were BC Place in Vancouver, British Columbia, and the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Georgia, which won the Award.

These prestigious awards recognize venues such as stadiums, convention centers, arenas, performing arts centers, and academic institutions that demonstrate excellence in the following four criteria: service to the community, team building/professional development, safety and security, and operational excellence. The criteria used to evaluate the venues are at the core of IAVM’s mission, and are key components to the success and vitality of the venue industry. A committee of industry leaders chose the finalist for each venue type, and winners were approved by the IAVM Board of Directors. In its 88th year, the Association’s annual conference and trade show is considered to be one of the largest venue industry gatherings in the U.S. An estimated 1,600 venue management professionals and exhibitors attended this year’s conference.
