The types of groups that select Springfield for events run the gamut. Check out the list below to see what’s coming to the city in the next few weeks.

Many groups book directly with hotels rather than through the Convention & Visitors Bureau and not every group listed below was booked by the CVB. All on the list, however, are using CVB services.

Besides helping groups book facilities and lodging, the bureau offers a wide variety of services ranging from information tables at events to marketing and public relations assistance. Learn more about the services offered by the CVB at or call 417-881-5300 or 800-678-8767.
