Visit San Antonio: Destination Sales & Services, May 2018

The Destination Group Sales Division confirmed 61,158 total room nights in April.  This includes confirming the Texas Association of School Administrators and Texas Association of School Boards, Inc.’s 2022 and 2024 Annual Joint Meeting in September of each of those years.  Each of those programs will bring more than 12,000 room nights and more than 5,000 attendees.

In May, we participated in the following customer events:

  • HelmsBriscoe’s Annual Business Conference (ABC) – This was a first for our organization.  This important third-party event-planning company brings many leads to our destination and enabled us to get to know more of its associates and to see what other opportunities it may have for San Antonio.
  • IAEE Women’s Leadership Forum – This event has been designed to focus on topics that are unique to women in the exhibitions and events industry, as well as provide knowledge and strategies for attendees to succeed in their current positions. Our Washington, D.C., team spent this day interacting with the important meetings customers in attendance.
  • PCMA Visionary Awards – Our team attended this event, which is held annually to honor the exceptional stars of the business events industry, with our Synchronicities partners and customers.

June is another busy month for the Destination Sales Team. We’ll participate in the following events:

  • MPI World Education Conference (WEC) – Our team will be attending this conference in Indianapolis during the first week of June.  There we will participate in education and networking opportunities with meeting planners and executives from across the country.  We also will host an evening dinner with customers as a part of our Synchronicities partnership.
  • PCMA Education Conference – This year’s conference takes place in Cleveland during the second week of June.  This program is always a premier industry education opportunity for all levels of meeting professionals.  Our team will have the opportunity to engage with these industry learners and grow together professionally with our customers.
