The Convention & Visitors Bureau represents the city at a variety of trade shows and events that provide opportunities for networking with people who plan group events such as conventions and sporting events.

The trade shows allow face-to-face interaction that helps the CVB and planners determine if Springfield is a good fit for an event and often results in group business coming to the city.

Recent and upcoming events at which the CVB represented the city include:

  • Missouri Society of Association Executives
  • Connect Marketplace
  • Connect Sports
  • IMEX America
  • Connect Faith
