When was the last time you got something really valuable for FREE?  Most CVB services are FREE!  If you aren’t using them, why not?!  Join the PCMA POWER Chapter on Friday, June 6, 2014 at 11:00am at the Sharonville Convention Center in an open and honest discussion on working with CVBs:

  • The Good  – Free Services Offered, Expertise, CVB “Secrets”
  • The Bad – Why do CVBs have to send out an RFP to every hotel in their city?
  • The Interesting – How are CVBs funded and why should that matter to you?

This will be an interactive session so come prepared with your comments and questions and be ready to join in the fun!  Julie Kirkpatrick, Director of Convention Sales at the Northern Kentucky CVB and John Brich, Director of Sales for Cincinnati USA will be the experts leading our discussion and answering your questions. Our moderator is Steve Burke, CMP, Regional Vice President of HelmsBriscoe.
