October will be a busy month for group business, then we’ll see a decline during the winter holidays in November and December.
We encourage you to welcome these and other groups to the city with messages on your marquee and in other ways that will make attendees want to come back soon.
The list below represents groups booked by the Convention & Visitors Bureau as well as groups booked directly through hotels and event venues. It does not represent every group coming to the city. The statistics represent anticipated attendees and room nights and are subject to change.
Learn more about how to get a group to the city by calling the CVB’s Sales Department at 417-881-5300 or 800-678-8767.
