“At Visit Plano, service is our mantra and our mandate. When it comes to hosting meetings, events and sporting events, think of Visit Plano as your one-stop shop.”
Attending a meeting involves a lot more than arriving in a city, checking into your hotel, and following the day’s itinerary. At Visit Plano, we pride ourselves on providing outstanding events in state-of-the-art meeting spaces and unforgettable local extracurricular experiences, all served up with our unique brand of hospitality.
On top of being named the “least-stressed city in Texas,” Plano was also named one of the “happiest places in the country;” and we carry those superlatives into everything we do. From major conventions, trade shows and conferences to intimate board meetings and retreats, our pros are ready to assist with the services and support planners need.
Be a Local Star
In 2021, Visit Plano saw over 1.6 million hotel rooms booked in Plano across 56 hotels. According to The Office of the Governor, Economic Development and Tourism report provided by Dean Runyan & Associates, these visitors spent over $750 million in Plano generating over $75 million in both state and local tax.
Visit Plano has a dedicated sales team that focuses on association, corporate, government, sports, and SMERF (social, military, education, religious, and fraternal) market segments. The team is responsible for providing the tools and information necessary for meeting and event planners and tournament directors to choose Plano as the host city for their events. Then, the Visit Plano team works hand in hand with the planners in finding them the best venues and hotels to fit their needs. The team will work with them from start to finish to make the planner shine and have the most successful event possible.
If your company is seeking a new destination for an upcoming seminar, meeting, trade show, or convention, please contact a member of our team for assistance. It’s our job to make you look good, and we would love to help you be the local star!
