4 Ways A CVB Makes Event Planning Easier
Event planning isn't an easy job. Between budgets, destination selections, securing speakers and maintaining registration numbers, it's enough to require a vacation after each event.
However, when you work with a destination marketing organization like Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Tourism, your task list becomes easier to manage. You have the added benefit of our experienced meeting planning professionals on your side. While there are numerous ways we help, we've compiled a few that help take the edge off your meeting planning.
1. Event Management. While our team can help develop event-planning checklists and timelines, we also assist with pre-event planning and can provide promotional literature for convention registration. If your event welcomes attendees to bring their families, we provide recommendations for spouse programs and children’s activities, as well as team-building ideas and theme parties.
2. Sourcing. A large piece of the event-planning puzzle is site selection. Our team provides facility profiles to help you make your selections. When you’re ready, our team is there to provide site inspections as well as gather proposals from facilities.
3. Marketing. Are you ready to build the hype around your event? Gain excitement by showcasing the destination through photography and video. Our team can provide you with both, as well as provide save-the-date ePostcards.
4. Logistics. We’re your feet on the ground! Consider our sales team as an extension of your own team. When you aren’t here, we can facilitate planning with attractions and restaurants.
