The Des Moines Area Sports Commission (DMASC), under the Greater Des Moines Convention and Visitors Bureau (GDMCVB) umbrella, has been awarded the 2012 SportsEvents Media Group Readers’ Choice Award.

The award recognizes the DMASC for exemplary creativity and professionalism toward the groups Greater Des Moines has hosted throughout 2011. Sports event professionals nominated and voted for DMASC to win this award.

“We are thrilled to receive this honor and share it with all of the communities we represent and partners we work alongside,” said Greg Edwards, President/CEO of the GDMCVB, which is the parent organization to the DMASC. “Our team works diligently to ensure our visitors have a pleasant experience and successful event each time they’re in Greater Des Moines. We couldn’t continually receive accolades such as this, without strong community support.”

The sports division of the GDMCVB is made up of Mark Kostek, Vice President of Sports Development; Scott Koch, Senior Sports Manager; and Katie Jessen, Senior Sports Event Manager.

SportsEvents will list all 2012 Readers’ Choice Award Winners in the January 2012 edition of the publication. A complete list of award winners is available online now at
