The CVB Sales Department works year round to bring conventions, amateur sports and other group events to the city. Along with boosting hotel revenues, visitors spend money at retailers, restaurants and attractions, helping keep the city’s economy strong.

The list below represents groups booked by the Convention & Visitors Bureau as well as groups booked directly through hotels and event venues. It does not represent every group coming to the city. The statistics represent anticipated attendees and room nights and are subject to change.

We encourage local businesses to welcome groups with message on their marquees.

Learn more about how to get a group to the city by calling the CVB’s Sales Department at 417-881-5300 or 800-678-8767.
