Convention Services

The Greensboro Area Convention & Visitors Bureau can assist you with your convention and event arrangements. Our Services Department will provide you with the following assistance: 

Pre-Convention Planning

We can provide information on facilities, attractions, and assistance to help increase your attendance. We will prepare and submit formal bid proposals and contact hotels and meeting/event facilities to reserve the accommodations to meet your needs. Our sales team will take you on a tour of Greensboro’s facilities. We also offer a multimedia presentation to help planners sell Greensboro to their group and a Meeting Planners Guide to help organize your event. 

Program Assistance

The Greensboro Area Convention & Visitors Bureau will assist you in locating resources including local caterers, florists, photographers, office equipment, promotional materials, souvenir ideas, security personnel, and all of your tradeshow and exhibit needs. We will help you plan spouse programs, sightseeing tours, and activities for children. We can help arrange guest speakers and entertainment. We will assist with arranging a welcome address from city dignitaries and/or letters from the Mayor of Greensboro. Discount coupons may be available for some attractions.

Destination Literature

The Greensboro Area Convention & Visitors Bureau creates an annual Visitors Guide highlighting attractions, dining, shopping, and entertainment opportunities. More information is available here on our website. We will provide complimentary printed copies of the guides and poly bags based on hotel room usage. Additional quantities are available for a nominal fee.

Computerized Housing Bureau

The Housing Bureau is available to groups utilizing multiple properties. The Greensboro Area Convention & Visitors Bureau will provide the necessary information and assist in designing a housing form. Each hotel holding a room block for your event confirms reservations. Please request Housing Bureau services at least six months before your visit.

Registration Assistance

Registration equipment available for your use includes a cash box and poly bags. The Greensboro Area Convention & Visitors Bureau will supply one registrar for four consecutive hours based on a minimum of 50 room nights free of charge. Registration personnel required for longer durations will be billed accordingly.

We offer assistance to you in promoting your meeting or event. Media lists are available. You can also find destination information for publicity, including news releases, digital images, and videos.
