ROCK HILL The Hood Center at York Technical College, recent winner of ConventionSouth magazine’s 2013 Readers’ Choice Award, adds 2014 ‘Top New or Renovated Meeting Site’ Award to its growing list of accolades.

“ConventionSouth readers are constantly seeking information on the newest, and like-new, meeting sites in the South in order to offer their attendees the most modern facilities available, and this is why we are honored to bestow The Hood Center with a Top New or Renovated Meeting Site Award,” said ConventionSouth Associate Publisher Marlane Bundock.

The Center is among an elite list of 50 meeting facilities located across the South to receive this year’s ‘Top New or Renovated Meeting Site’ Award. As part of the recognition, the Center will be featured as an award recipient in the December 2013 Awards Issue of ConventionSouth magazine.

“This recognition from ConventionSouth magazine is further indication that the Baxter Hood Center is a top caliber meeting and event facility. We are proud of the work we are doing here to provide an excellent client and guest experience for the benefit of York Technical College and its students,” said Hood Center Director Steve Brennan.

After ConventionSouth performed a lengthy review of what The Hood Center has to offer meeting planners and attendees, the magazine concluded that the Center indeed displays a superior commitment to providing groups with the top-of-the-line amenities and service that they require.
