Last week, Visit Savannah staffers, along with hospitality partners Angela Daniels of the Savannah Convention Center and Dawn Ryan of the Westin Resort, attended the Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA) meeting in Columbus, Ohio. This meeting brought together 3,200 of the nation’s top meeting planners and destination representatives for continuing education and networking at this 4-day event. Visit Savannah hosted a focus group with 14 top planners representing organizations that could use the expanded Savannah Convention Center. This exclusive event provided invaluable insight into their thoughts on how we can offer the best competitive pricing packages to attract organizations to meet in Savannah.
In addition, we hosted a VIP private reception event with top select planners. Over 65 people attended, and they became familiar with Savannah and our comprehensive convention package.
