At Christmas time we all tend to get thinking about what we'd like to receive - and what we'd like to give. Here at the Greater Lansing Convention and Visitors Bureau we do a lot of thinking about what those that plan meetings and conventions might like to have. Some of these things are attainable; others are tougher to come by. Everyone knows the Greater Lansing CVB is dedicated to helping visitors of all kinds better enjoy Michigan's Capital Region, but what a lot of people DON'T know, is that those that plan big meetings, conferences, trade shows and conventions have a very difficult job. The GLCVB understands this, and just like a child can spot that his mother might need a new robe for Christmas when he spots a small hole in the arm as Mom makes scrambled eggs one Saturday morning, the GLCVB knows what busy planners need to help make an event great, because we're right there with them. In the trenches, so to speak, looking to help make meetings smooth so everyone wants to come back to this community we love so much.

GLCVB Event Planning Professionals

What makes an Event Professionals wish list? You might be surprised. Watch this video to find out!

We had a little fun this year at our 2012 Holiday Showcase Event and asked Meeting and Event Professionals in attendance to tell us at the GLCVB what's on their holiday wish list. We followed that wish list up with a gift to them from the GLCVB. Want to peek at what it is? Whether you plan meetings or not, this video will entertain and educate about not only the difficult life of an event professional, but everything that Greater Lansing can be for a big conference or event. Enjoy!
