HOT SPRINGS NATIONAL PARK, Arkansas — Spa-Con, the multi-genre comics and pop culture convention held annually in Hot Springs, has received awards from two tourism-oriented organizations. 

The Greater Hot Springs Chapter of the Arkansas Hospitality Association has awarded Spa-Con its Silver Cup Award, which goes to a person or an organization that has shown outstanding efforts in tourism for the Greater Hot Springs Area.

The event also received two awards from the Arkansas Festival and Events Association in the form of ALFiE Awards (Arkansans Love Festivals and Events Awards) at the group’s convention in Hot Springs. 

The ALFiE Awards “recognize the best and brightest of festivals and events in Arkansas.” 

Those awards were for Best Photo, awarded to Spa-Con photographer, Alejandro Martinez of Hot Springs for a photo of Bumblebee making an entrance at Spa-Con 2018 and Best Promotional Print, awarded to Spa-Con graphic designer, Marisa Rodgers of Hot Springs for the Spa-Con 2018 promotional poster. 

“We are pleased that Spa-Con is receiving recognition from our peers in the tourism field as the reputation of our convention continues to grow nationwide,” said Bill Solleder, marketing director for Visit Hot Springs and one of the founders of the event. “Our belief is that Spa-Con will keep growing both in numbers of fans and in public awareness. It is one more event that showcases Hot Springs as a great place to visit, where something exciting is happening all the time.”

The Fourth Annual Spa-Con will be held at the Hot Springs Convention Center  September 20 – 22. More information is available at www.spa-con.org.
