What information should a planner come to a CVB with? What questions should planners be asking CVBs to help utilize their services more fully? Midwest Meetings asked these questions so you, the planner, don’t have to. Here are some responses we received from Midwest CVBs
Ohio has been known as “the Heart of it All” due to its location as a central corridor of transportation and trade. The rolling rural lands give way to vast cities, all with warm culture and hospitality. As Bev Rose of the Dayton CVB described it, “Once folks have visited Dayton they are impressed by the big city amenities and culture, the spirit of innovation, and the warm and friendly Midwestern hospitality, and as a result are often eager to return.”
• CVBs disclose hidden gems in their area • Off the beated path adds adventure for attendees • Old and new venues create unique experiences
Planners want to give attendees the best in every aspect of their event, but sometimes finding a new spark for attendees can be a hard to find. Luckily, area CVBs can help planners find the perfect locations for their groups and point you in the direction of unique venues and one-of-a-kind experiences. These hidden gems could be just the experience to add extra excitement to your next event.
