Additional Comments:

The CVB represents the Convention Center:
Speaking Of Galveston ...

"We looked at many cities in Texas to host our annual spring conference. After receiving proposals from various areas, we were very impressed with the way the hotels, convention center, and city organizations in Galveston all worked as a team to make sure our conference needs were met. This same team spirit was shown throughout our stay. Hands-on staff members were always available and quickly responded to any adjustments we had with our schedules, meeting room changes, and hotel room assignments. The convention center also provided an excellent assortment of fruit, pastries, bagels, juice, and coffee each morning that outclassed catering from previous conferences we’ve had in other facilities. For three days we enjoyed the smoothest and most seamless conference event I have been involved with as part of the Commission.”
