ISU, AMES CONVENTION BUREAU TEAM UP TO PROMOTE AMES
AMES, Iowa -- A new publication is putting Iowa State University and Ames at the fingertips of meeting planners across the nation.
ISU and the Ames Convention and Visitor's Bureau (CVB) have teamed up to produce a Meeting Planner's Guide designed to assist meeting planners with everything from hotel rooms to nametags.
The guide highlights community and university meeting facilities, lodging, dining, and entertainment options. It also features maps of ISU and Ames and a checklist of items to consider when planning a large meeting or conference event.
"Meeting planners are faced with the challenge of organizing a myriad of details," said Liz Venner-Kurt, ISU director of conference services. "Our goal in producing this guide was to make that effort as quick and thorough as possible."
Guides of this type are not uncommon. However, a city- university partnership to produce such a resource is a first, according to Rich Harter, director of the Ames CVB.
"We are very excited about our unique partnership with ISU on this project," said Harter. "It makes sense to coordinate our messages and resources into one convenient package."
The guide is available through the Ames CVB at (515) 232- 4032.
