They are considered the ultimate resource for meeting planners. For many a CVB (Convention and Visitors Bureau) is the first point of contact. And for good reason. CVBs know their cities inside out. I’ve spoken with many planners that haven’t approached a CVB because they’ve felt that their meeting was just too small. Not so. No matter the size of your group, a Convention and Visitors Bureau can help point you in the right direction. Their database of suppliers range from; hotels, attractions, promotional companies, venues, airlines and even small independent restaurants. And the best part is that they offer their services for free.
