VP Convention Services
The Convention and Event Experience department provides VIP services to meeting and convention planners. Through volunteer engagement and local asset activation, this team provides creative and memorable experiences for meeting attendees by infusing community-wide interactions with their business event itinerary and showcasing the city's best hospitality.
Our volunteers are available to greet your attendees, assist with wayfinding, distribute your materials, and share insider information at the airport, your meeting venue, designated hotels and throughout Downtown Cleveland. Our volunteers are passionate and knowledgeable about Cleveland and are an invaluable resource for visitors. They take pride in making your attendees feel welcome in their city.
Cleveland knows great food, and we want to introduce it to your attendees. But we know that sometimes time is tight during meetings, and it can be hard to squeeze in a sit-down meal at one of our many fantastic restaurants. So we want to bring that experience to you. Our Meet + Eat Food Truck Program brings Cleveland's food scene to the front door of the Huntington Convention Center so your attendees can quickly grab lunch prepared by a number of Cleveland's hottest chefs, without ever leaving the convention center complex.
Spice up your meeting with curated art that corresponds to your meeting theme. Let our team hand-pick local artists and performers to enhance the atmosphere with music, art and performance while your attendees are in town. This can bring your event to a whole new level while infusing Cleveland's rich culture into your attendees' experiences.
Our team members are available to welcome your attendees as they arrive seamlessly and professionally to ensure a great start to their meeting experience and a warm welcome to Cleveland.
