Hosting travel writers is a great way to increase Pueblo awareness....nationally and internationally. When writers immerse themselves in Pueblo first hand, they truly Experience the Flavor of Pueblo!
Representatives from Helms Briscoe, a national meeting planner organization, got the grand tour of Pueblo from our team. They were impressed, amazed, and enlightened with all our town has to offer. They are excited to share with their clients our wonderful hotel accommodations, Riverwalk, Convention Center and meeting spaces! In addition,, the Visit Pueblo Team provided a tour for a representative from the Colorado Chamber of Commerce & another independent conference planner to collect ideas for uniquely Pueblo experiences for upcoming events. Taking the time to work with event planners creates big dividends in our community with guests spending dollars and enticing them to return with their families to explore Pueblo more thoroughly! We work hard to make sure Pueblo establishes itself as a convention destination and build our reputation with event planners.
