The travel and tourism industry plays an increasingly vital role in the economic growth across the world. Utilizing your local Convention Visitors Bureau (CVB) or Destination Marketing Organization (DMO) can help maximize your relationship with the organization to plan a successful meeting or convention.

CVBs work hard to promote their destination by providing meeting planners social media marketing, media services, swag bags, housing services, transportation, staffing and registration, planning events around an event and much more. The CVB should understand the demographic of your attendees and ensure there is no conflict of interest, which will make for a smooth operation. Early on, set up a meeting with your CVB and all of the key players who will be involved in the planning and marketing process. Face to face contact and brainstorming collectively will make for a successful event.

CVBs are your number one fans. They want your meeting or event to succeed, which is an all-around win for the destination and the local economy. If you have a successful meeting or event, the CVB has done its job to its fullest potential and the destination partners successfully worked collaboratively. The repeat of business motivates CVBs to work hard on a daily basis and to conclude with a happy meeting planner because in the end it’s all about the experience and relationships that were formed.
