Below is a list of group events coming to Springfield through October. The list represents groups attracted to Springfield by CVB sales efforts and groups receiving convention services from the CVB. Not all groups were booked by the CVB. In many cases, meeting planners work directly with hotels to book their events and utilize convention services provided by the CVB.
