What small town
would you bring
your meeting back to?

“Long Beach, Calif., was wonderful. Very clean, very well laid out. Their transportation network was extremely convenient, with trolleys and buses everywhere. We had a personal injury on site, and the local hospital took care of it right away. It was safe; it was personable; it was lovely.”

“We had a terrific experience when we were in Biloxi, Miss. The Grand Casino there keeps the hotel and meeting space across the street from the casino, which meant our attendees didn’t have to traipse through the slot machines to get to their meeting. And flying in was easy with the airports in Mobile, Ala., and New Orleans within reasonable driving distance.”

“Portland, Ore., and Baltimore are both terrific. I’d have to say Louisville, Ky., was my favorite, though, mainly because working with the CVB and hotels there was so easy. They really made it a pleasure.”
