Education Topic: How CVBs Work - Beyond Room Blocks

This month’s session will be a panel presentation comprised of both suppliers and planners who will talk about getting the most from Convention and Visitors Bureaus. Let your CVBs work for you when planning your next meeting, conference, or event. Look beyond just using them for room blocks, or even RFP assistance. Discover some unusual ways a CVB can work for the meeting planner (i.e.: ferry tickets, restaurant recommendations, local resources, welcome packets, planning a cool outing for the group, and more…). Let them help you stretch your budget, while making your event memorable for your attendees.   Learn how to better use the CVB during the planning process, as well as during the actual meeting/conference/event.

Core Competency – Logistics

Speaker: Old Dominion Chapter’s own Wayne Callis, CGMP, will lead this panel discussion comprised of our CVB supplier members and some of our planners who utilize the CVBs.

After the session, attendees will:

  • Have a better understanding of what CVBs can do for both suppliers and planners.  
  • Understand the resources CVBs can provide to help them in the planning, and execution of events/meetings/conferences.
  • Be able to make informed decisions on if a CVB can be helpful to them in the RFP process, and/or in securing a block of rooms.      

*Please note: You must be in your seat by 3:15 PM to receive contact hours.
