The local destination marketing organizations, convention and visitors bureaus and tourism offices know the “situation on the ground” in most areas you may be considering for a meeting or event. And as more cities are competing for business, CVBs and tourism offices have upped the ante on innovative services available, often at no cost to planners.

Join top meetings industry professional Bonnie Wallsh, chief strategist at Bonnie Wallsh Associates, for this one-hour webinar that shows you how to best take advantage of the wide range of benefits that CVBs and tourism offices offer to save your organization or client (and yourself!) time and money.

As a result of participating in this session, you will learn:

  • How to secure the best room rates in a destination.
  • How to secure the myriad free services, such as marketing and technology assistance, offered by CVBs and tourism offices.
  • How to make sure a CVB only suggests properties that fit your meeting.
  • How to use a CVB to be your liaison to government departments.
  • How CVBs can help with your annual meeting’s rotation.
