Arrangements can also be made to have a city official write a welcome letter for your attendee welcome packets, or give a personal welcome address at one of your functions.
Upon request, the CVB will distribute your press release to the local media to help promote your event being held in the area. When applicable, regional and statewide releases can also be sent.
