Meeting & Tour Planners


Teamwork is the foundation upon which any successful organization is built. Whether thousands of employees are dispatched to carry out specific tasks or far fewer are charged with multiple responsibilities, the desired outcomes are unanimously the same - a knowledgeable and empowered staff, the highest level of customer service and clients who continue to return time and time again.

As a means to this end, the Akron/Summit Convention & Visitors Bureau has introduced a new sales and marketing concept: Destination Sales Team. Comprised of our sales managers, director of sales, vice president of sales and vice president of marketing, the new team approach will ensure that you receive efficient and comprehensive attention during each step of your planning process.

In an increasingly competitive environment, we are committed to providing you with services and an attention to detail that allow us to distinguish ourselves from other destinations.

The material in this section will help you get a head start with planning your next meeting, convention or group tour. There is essential information about area overnight accommodations, convention/meeting facilities and group tour assets. A complete printed Destination Planner is also available at your request.

Our team will provide the support and enthusiasm to ensure your next visit to Akron/Summit County is one for the record books!
