Ridgecrest garners conference planners' praise

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP) -- LifeWay Ridgecrest Conference Center in North Carolina has been awarded the first-ever 2012 "Praise Award" by Religious Conference Manager magazine.

The nation's largest Christian conference facility, Ridgecrest is owned and operated by LifeWay Christian Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention and has ministered to millions of guests during its more than a century of service.

Members of the Religious Conference Manager Association across the country were asked to nominate hotels and conference centers in the U.S. that exemplify top-quality service to convention and meeting planners as well as guests. Ridgecrest was the only Christian conference center named among the 15 top properties, which also included three Hyatt Hotels, two Marriott properties and several resorts and spas.

"We are honored to be included in such an elite group," said Bill Bowman, Ridgecrest's director. "It's certainly gratifying to be named as one of the best conference centers in the country by religious meeting planners.

"It's also additional affirmation of the significant investments we've made in Ridgecrest to improve the meeting experience. Recognition like this along with strong demands for the facility show that we're on the right track," Bowman said.


Ridgecrest's 1,300-acre complex, in the Blue Ridge Mountains in western North Carolina, offers options for individual sabbaticals, small group meetings and large conferences with outdoor recreation facilities, diverse lodging accommodations and meeting rooms and large group spaces, including Spillman Auditorium which seats more than 2,000 people.
