When it comes to telling people Springfield is a great travel destination, getting media to produce positive stories about the things to see and do here is a sure way to do it.

The CVB public relations staff works year round with a variety of journalists to get those stories done, including hosting five journalists for a press tour Oct. 10-13 and representing the city at conferences catering to media.

Those conferences include the following:

  • Association of Great Lakes Outdoor Writers
  • Southeastern Outdoor Press Association
  • Missouri Press Association
  • Society of American Travel Writers

For more information about how the CVB works with media, contact Susan Wade, public relations manager, at 417-881-5300, ext. 101, or swade@springfieldmo.org.
