The Facilities’ Prime Site award is given to the top entertainment, sports, and special event venues, including arenas, civic centers, coliseums, auditoriums, stadiums, theaters, pacs, amphitheaters, university venues, fairgrounds and special event venues.

Readers of the magazine nominate venues based on numerous criteria ranging from promotional support and event staff proficiency to physical aspects such as seating versatility, A/V and staging quality, and back-of-house amenities.

It was recently announced that United Wireless Arena was the 2018 recipient of the 2018 Prime Site Award.

"This award is based on the experiences of the artists, patrons, and promoters who we work with, it shows that we are meeting their expectations as well as our own when hosting various events" United Wireless Arena Executive Director Chris Ragland said. "It is a real testament to the hard work and efforts of everyone on our staff that makes this happen in all areas of Venue management in order to be successful."

Winners of the award demonstrate the ability to please both incoming acts and patrons on multiple levels. The award serves to show the dedication and commitment to quality that the staff of the arena shows at every event.

The 2018 award winners will be announced in the 2018 Facilities & Event Management Magazine SuperBook issue publishing in their August edition.
