For convention planners nationwide, the SMG name carries the brand promise of a well-run facility and unparalleled expertise in all phases of convention planning. This assurance has won us national contracts from major corporations as well as repeat business from event planners looking to rotate their conventions around the country.
Through web links, email news blasts, bulk advertising buys in trade publications and participation in major convention planner trade shows, SMG gives municipal clients exposure that may be prohibitively expensive to buy on their own. We also utilize the full-range of electronic capabilities, including a proprietary online events calendar and booking system that enable SMG onsite sales directors to share leads and co-sell properties. Property owners benefit from the full force of SMG working to send business their way, and events planners gain the ability to check SMG venues and available dates 24/7.
SMG offers its clients the benefit of experience and success in convention sales and marketing support. Our corporate office and extensive network of facilities allows us to offer:
- Dedicated national sales and marketing systems
- National contracts to help facilitate bookings
- A network of Directors to share leads and client information
- Lead generation
