empowerMINT.com Video Series: How Can CVBs Help Meeting Planners
I’m Carrie Ferenac with DMAI’s empowermint.com joined by Jeff Hewitt, Senior Vice-President, Visit Savannah talking about how CVB/DMOs solve problems for meeting planners.
There are so many ways CVBs can help–we are the local destination experts and we are here to help meeting planners solve their biggest issues, the problems they face every day as they are planning their events. Because we have the knowledge, the local knowledge, the local expertise as far as new products that are just coming on to the scene, we can help them connect with the service providers that are best suited to address their needs.
That means specifically finding really good value for meeting planners, things that they could not find otherwise.
That can often be the case; CVBs know the pockets of opportunities are, where those value dates are. It may be a given month or could be a days of the week pattern issue. We also know if a local hotel recently had a cancellation or if they are looking for a business opportunity to fill a specific set of dates. Those are the things that are really hard to find on your own, on the Internet.
Thank you Jeff as it is all about solving problems for meeting planners, and that’s why empowerMINT.com is here as well.
