Convention Sales Update from visit Spokane

The final countdown is on, the anticipation is building and the list is growing. The $55-million expansion of the Spokane Convention Center is expected to be complete mid-February. Since the July 2013 groundbreaking, crews have been working hard on the 91-thousand square foot addition. Meanwhile, the sales teams at Visit Spokane and the Convention Center have been making progress of their own.
"The physical difference in the Convention Center is, itself, exciting," says Keith Backsen, Visit Spokane Vice President of Sales & Services. "But it's the additional attention from meeting planners that we're now getting that's really going to pay off."

Backsen says that the expansion has put Spokane on some 70 new meeting planner lists. "In the past, Spokane would be considered, but we couldn't make the cut to the short list, for one reason or another. Now, we are making those short lists because the expansion allows us to meet a whole new set of needs."

If you belong to an organization looking for meeting or convention space, contact Keith at kbacksen@visitspokane.com.
