The CVB’s group sales department is planning a telemarketing sales blitz for Aug. 8-9 and staff members are representing the city at a variety of trade shows and other events where they can network with meeting planners.

Recent and upcoming events include:

  • Christian Meetings & Conventions Association Marketplace
  • Society of Government Meeting Planners
  • Meeting Professionals International World Education Conference
  • Destination Marketing Association International Annual Convention

The sales department also hosted meeting planners at two Springfield Cardinals baseball games in June.
