The CVB and area hotels will conduct a sales blitz Aug. 6-8 to generate leads for conventions and other group events that could come to Springfield.

Sales staff from Springfield hotels are encouraged to participate. The CVB will provide lists of qualified leads for the blitz that will take place using a phone bank at Ozarks Technical Community College.

Previous sales blitzes have been successful and resulted in groups booking in the city, said Dana Maugans, sales director at the bureau.

Hotel sales staff interested in participating should contact Maugans at 417-881-5300, ext. 111, or
