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. 

Considerably known for being the hub of the city, Hyatt Regency San Francisco invites you to experience San Francisco like you’ve never experienced it before. Premiering its 15 new guest rooms, Hyatt Regency San Francisco boasts breathtaking views and a feeling of effortless luxury.

 

A wise ski instructor once said his favorite resort was the one with the most snow and the least people. When it comes to bringing a group up for the day from a nearby city or going all-in and planning an event in a ski resort’s base village, there are several mountains that fit that description across the West.

Tourism and skiing didn’t give birth to many of the West’s sweetest mountain towns. Instead, mining and early-day settlers were the drivers behind development that left behind character-filled downtown districts that are the community treasures of today. It’s important to note that sometimes downtown lodging properties don’t have enough guest rooms or function space to host groups, but options are typically available nearby (frequently ski resorts) for a win-win combination.
