Visit Omaha, the official tourism authority for the City of Omaha, is proud to announce the promotion of Erin Brungardt to Director of Convention Services.
Brungardt began her career with Visit Omaha 11 years ago as the Convention Services Coordinator. In 2016, she was promoted to the position of Convention Services Housing Manager, serving as the liaison with organizations planning conferences in the city.
“Erin has gained a lot of industry knowledge in her previous roles with us,” said Cathy Keller, Vice President of Sales and Services for Visit Omaha. “Her experience and ability to come up with creative solutions will be a big asset to planners looking to hold their meetings in Omaha.”
In her new position, Brungardt will continue assisting planners with their events, work with the marketing team to create promotional pieces to help organizations build attendance to their meetings, and lead the day-to-day operations of the services team.
In 2017, the Visit Omaha services team provided assistance to 266 groups. Those groups represent an economic impact of more than $232 million for the city of Omaha.
