The Convention & Visitors Bureau is hosting two travel writers Feb. 21-23. 

Diana Lamdbin Meyer and Barbara Gibbs Ostmann will visit a number of attractions, restaurants, historic sites and businesses while they're in the city. Their goal is to learn more about the city so they can sell stories to various media around the country. Meyer and Ostmann are both well-known travel writers who have visited and written about Springfield as a travel destination in the past.

Susan Wade, public relations manager for the CVB, will guide the writers through the city and assist them in obtaining the information and photographs they need for their articles. For information about how the CVB works with travel media, contact Wade at or call 417-799-0401.

Thank you to the attractions providing complimentary admission, restaurants providing meals and to the DoubleTree Hotel for providing lodging for Meyer and Ostmann.
