It's 2024, and we're excited to kick off a new year with another Tourism Talk Live! 

For the uninitiated, Tourism Talk Live is GRCVB's quarterly marketing update meeting in which we share with our partners what we've been up to and how we can work together better in the future to promote visitation to Wake County. We also invite partners to share updates from their businesses that could help others succeed in the future. 

GRCVB's Winter Tourism Talk Live will convene on Thurs., Feb. 8, at 10am at The Ritz in Raleigh. A vaunted music venue in its own right, The Ritz also boasts ample accommodations for meetings and events with incoming groups and convention off-site receptions/meals.

Our winter edition of Tourism Talk Live will be in a roundtable format where attendees will rotate between GRCVB's various departments. Our Bureau colleagues will share how each department works to grow visitation within Raleigh and Wake County and how best they can work with you in the future! 

We'll begin our morning at 10am with a short networking session including refreshments, followed by our roundtables beginning at 10:30am.

The Ritz is at 2820 Industrial Dr., Raleigh, NC 27609. Lot parking is available adjacent to the building with more along the street.

We ask all hospitality industry partners in Wake County to consider attending; this is a great way to meet GRCVB staff, determine the best ways to attract visitors as your patrons throughout the year and network with other hospitality partners around the county.

Registration is open now through Mon., Feb. 5; for questions regarding Tourism Talk Live or if you are interested in hosting a future quarterly marketing meeting of GRCVB, contact marketing manager Andrew H. Baker, CGSP®here.

We look forward to seeing you at The Ritz!
