Are you a CVB partner in Wake County that provides a service to meetings, conventions and events? Are you looking to get more involved in the community, meet some peers and learn how to collaborate across industries to the benefit of arriving groups? Well, do we have the event for you!

GRCVB's Destination Services Department is excited to announce the inaugural Service Provider & Venue Summit on Tues., April 9, from 2-4pm, at Raleigh Union Station

Who can attend?
Wake County-based event service providers (caterers, florists, photographers, entertainers etc.) and meeting venues can register for the afternoon summit. We'd love for meeting hotels and major meeting venues to join us, as well as representatives from unique meeting sites, such as museums, restaurants and breweries, entertainment venues and more (in other words, if you have a unique meeting site listing on, we'd love to see you!).
