Visit San Antonio: Destination Group Sales, November 2017

The Destination Group Sales Division confirmed some impactful groups in September that positively affect our future need periods.  This includes confirming the Hospitality Financial & Technology Professionals for its Annual International Hospitality Tech Conference for June 2020, which will bring in more than 5,500 attendees and close to 10,000 room nights.  Also, the group team confirmed the Dwyer Group for its Annual Convention for August 2019, which will bring in more than 5,000 attendees and more than 8,000 room nights.

In October, the Visit San Antonio team attended IMEX America, which is an appointment-based tradeshow. There, we had close to 200 appointments with current and potential convention customers for San Antonio, as well as hosted two customer events with our Synchronicities partners. 

In November, we are attending and hosting several sales events.  We started the month off with Connect Texas, an appointment-based trade show that brought together Texas corporate and association meeting planners for a three-day event in Horseshoe Bay.  That same week, Visit San Antonio hosted its annual Client Advisory Board (CAB).  Fourteen members of our CAB were in attendance for a two-day gathering that reviewed various meeting and convention topics, all done with the goal of gaining insight from these valuable clients on what is important to the meetings industry today.  At the end of the month, we will host IAEE’s Expo! Expo!, an incredible opportunity to showcase our destination to more than 2,000 meeting and convention planners and experts.  If you haven’t done so already, please sign up for a volunteer shift to help make this conference a success at www.shiftboard.com/visitsanantonio.
