The Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau has renewed its relationship with EventSphere, a national meetings and events firm based in Atlanta, to fulfill housing needs for events coming to the city who use “bureau housing” to book hotel rooms. EventSphere has worked with the ACVB for the past four years, booking more than 15 events annually over that time.
“In a city with nearly 95,000 hotel rooms, meeting planners frequently turn to the ACVB to assist with making housing arrangements for their attendees and their families,” said Todd Lambert, CEO of EventSphere. “Being the ACVB’s partner for another three years speaks highly of the bureau’s confidence in us and our ever-improving technology and personal service.”
Many conventions contract with meeting-and event-planning professional firms to handle various aspects of their meetings, including hotel bookings, transportation, family activities and registration. Additionally, they turn to the ACVB for guidance to manage all aspects of their meetings.
“What sets Atlanta apart from other destinations is our collaborative hospitality community,” said Mark Vaughan, executive vice president and chief sales officer, Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau. “Our relationship with EventSphere is the perfect example of this and we look forward to continuing this valuable partnership.”
As one of the nation’s most popular destinations for meetings and conventions, Atlanta has more than 10,000 hotel rooms in the downtown area within walking distance of the Georgia World Congress Center, the Georgia Dome and Centennial Olympic Park. EventSphere staff maintains personal communications and relationships with the hotel community and meeting planners, serving as a resource for a broad range of convention services.
