Your Planning Partner

Need help with attendance building or finding the perfect unique venue for your next event? Don't stress. When you work with the Greater Lansing Convention and Visitors Bureau, you have a built-in planning partner! Our staff is full of specialized industry experts with plenty of event-planning experience and key local relationships to get things done. All of our sales managers hold the well-respected Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) designation and the Greater Lansing CVB is fully accredited with Destinations International (DI). You'll soon find out, we care as much about hosting a perfect event as you do.


As a direct result of the devastating impact COVID-19 has had on the local hospitality industry, the GLCVB/GLSA finds itself in the unenviable position of having to implement a temporary leave policy for many of the staff of the organization.

The GLCVB/GLSA will significantly scale back promotional efforts but will maintain critical operations for the foreseeable future.

If you have an immediate need and wish to contact a staff member please reach out to the department head listed below.
