• Visit Jacksonville Launches Attendee Passport for Meetings and Conventions

    POSTED March 11, 2019

Visit Jacksonville recently launched the Attendee Passport. The Attendee Passport allows meeting and convention attendees to tap into exclusive savings and discounts at participating restaurants, attractions and experiences throughout Jacksonville.

Discounts and offers are delivered directly to attendees’ phones via text and email. Meeting planners can forward meeting attendees a link to sign up to automatically receive exclusive deals and discounts. 

“The Attendee Passport is all about making it easier for those attending meetings and conferences in Jacksonville to gain access to exclusive discounts to some of our best experiences,” say Jeanne Bothwell, director of sales, Visit Jacksonville. “Jacksonville is already a meeting-friendly destination, and the Attendee Passport adds another element of convenience for groups and conventions.” 

Participating venues for the Attendee Passport include restaurants, breweries, bars, nightclubs, St. Johns River Taxi, golf and specialty experiences. More venues will be added as the program expands.

The Broadmoor is welcoming a new 125,000-square-foot Exhibition Hall in spring 2020, an addition to the existing Broadmoor Hall, International Center and Colorado Hall to form “The Broadmoor Event Center.”  

The Broadmoor will be the only Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five Diamond awarded hotel in the country to operate a large on-site exhibition space. 


An hour drive from Yellowstone National Park, The Wilson Hotel Big Sky Residence Inn has recently become the first major hotel in Big Sky, Montana.

“What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” is taking on a new meaning for MGM Resorts International. With major investments into Las Vegas’ meeting and convention spaces, the city is proving itself to be a place unlike any other.
