Pre-Convention Planning

The success of your convention depends largely on its early groundwork. The Convention Services Department will assist you in finalizing all details with regard to accommodations and meeting facilities We can also pass along sure-fire ideas to help you create the right environment for productive, professional meetings and memorable times after hours.

We can help you "sell" Mobile Bay to your members with informational materials, videos, and brochures that will pique their interest. For guests and family members, we can suggest any number of unique sights and intriguing side trips they can take while you are meeting or otherwise tending to business.

 

Contact Kathy Smith, Convention Services Manager at ksmith@mobile.org for assistance, guidance or a service request. 251-208-2016.
