The CVB staff represents the city at a variety of trade shows and educational conferences.

The trade shows allow staff to have face-to-face interaction with meeting and event planners and meet new contacts.

Educational conferences help staff stay abreast of trends in technology, marketing, sales and other areas that will make the bureau more effective in promoting Springfield as a travel destination.

In recent weeks, staff members have been to:

  • Society of Government Meeting Planners Board Meeting
  • Kansas City Chapter of Meeting Professionals International Educational Conference
  • Missouri Bank Travel
  • Simpleview Summit

Coming up:

  • Collaborate Marketplace
  • Missouri Association of Convention & Visitors Bureaus Annual Conference
