Putting the Meeting and Event Guide together wouldn’t be possible without the assistance from area visitor bureaus and chambers of commerce. These organizations are the best resources for learning more about what meeting spaces are available, which caterers are the best fit for any style of event, and how to spend your free time once the meeting is complete.
