The eyes of Texas travel professionals soon will be on The Woodlands.
For the first time, The Woodlands Convention & Visitors Bureau (The Woodlands CVB) will host more than 400 representatives from Convention & Visitor Bureaus across Texas at the Annual Conference for the Texas Association of Convention & Visitors Bureaus in 2015.
“The Woodlands CVB is very pleased that our peers from Texas selected The Woodlands. We have worked very hard over the past few years to develop The Woodlands as a destination for conventions and leisure travelers. We appreciate the opportunity to host this conference,” said Nelda Blair, Chairman of The Woodlands CVB.
The largest association of Convention & Visitor Bureaus in the nation, the Texas Association of CVB’s 2015 conference will bring travel professionals to The Woodlands for education, promotional idea inspiration and other important travel and convention related topics. The three-day conference also will serve as a showcase to present The Woodlands as a premier Texas destination for groups and vacationing families.
“To host travel professionals from across the state, many of whom have never been to The Woodlands, is an incredible opportunity,” says Nick Wolda, president of The Woodlands CVB. “It is a real honor to be selected.”
The Woodlands was selected at the August 2013 TACVB conference in El Paso, Texas where representatives from The Woodlands CVB, The Woodlands Resort & Conference Center and The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel & Convention Center presented the attributes of The Woodlands to TACVB delegates who voted for the 2015 conference location.
