Local Connections Can Open a World of Opportunities

Local connectionsDoes your company or membership organization hold meetings and conventions outside of Wake County?

If the answer is "yes," we'd love to connect and share ways we can support bringing those events here in the future! Or, if you have an idea for a new conference, we'd love to chat about that and help make it happen in Raleigh. (We do this all for free!)

Here at the Greater Raleigh Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB), we're always looking for more ways to work with local professionals to bring their businesses' meetings (big and small) to the Raleigh area. Or, to start new events right here in the destination, like the All Things Open conference that local Jason Hibbets helped start and that has sparked a wider movement.

Our goal is to bring meetings and conventions to the Raleigh Convention Center and to other facilities throughout Wake County, thus attracting more visitors who make a positive impact on the local economy through their spending. Help us elevate Raleigh, N.C., by taking pride in your hometown and working with us to host in this area the meetings of businesses/organizations you're affiliated with.
