The Fort Worth Convention & Visitors Bureau (FWCVB) recently unveiled a new services microsite for meeting planners due to increased meeting attendance and a high number of requests. FortWorth.com/Plan offers tools and tips that allow clients to plan and promote a meeting seamlessly. 

“We wanted to create an online environment that is a one-stop shop for our customers,” said Nannette Eiland, FWCVB director of services. “The number of meetings serviced by the FWCVB has increased 28% in the past five years and we expect that number to continue to grow.”

The new site would offer clients with the exact tools for success along with appealing content to get their attendees excited about visiting the Fort Worth area.  Services of the new microsite include:

·         Easy to navigate tools menu

·         Dynamic video content

·         New marketing materials

·         Social media tips and best practices

·         New high-resolution destination photography

·         A “responsive” design that automatically fits any size device

·         Google maps, Yelp reviews and Open Table links

The City of Forth Worth has also begun discussions with developers to add a new convention center hotel downtown in a response to increased convention and hotel bookings. Meeting planners are encouraged to share and tweet their thoughts about the new site to @VisitFortWorth with the hashtag #SeeFortWorth. 

This September, Los Angeles Airport Marriott is beginning the final stage of their $50-million renovations.  

The redesign includes more than 50,000 square feet of meeting space alongside a maximum capacity of 2,500 people. The hotel will be set to host parties of any nature, including Corporate events, conventions, company retreats, holiday parties, banquets, exhibitions, workshops, and everything in between.  

 

North of Philadelphia, Bucks County is celebrating their record-breaking amount of visitors.  

In 2018, the county welcomed 8.15 million visitors, an increase of 1.6 percent from 2017 and achieved a record-breaking $1.1 billion in total economic impact. With such numbers, the hospitality industry is taking full advantage.  

As Bucks County tourist status rises, for the travelers who are searching for a local experience, Bucks County is filled with breweries, independent restaurants, and hidden gems to visit.  

 

As of August 2019, Detroit’s renowned convention center is officially renamed the TCF Center

The change came in the form of an unprecedented 22-year naming rights deal that will set the venue for financial success in the future, as well as a move toward becoming a self-sustaining facility by 2024.
