Meetings Mean Business
The Meetings Mean Business Coalition (MMBC) was created in 2009 by the U.S. Travel Association to showcase the incredible value that business meetings, travel and events bring to the U.S. economy. Its members span all facets of the face-to-face industry, which have come together behind a common goal: providing the resources, tools and information to show the real impact the industry has on businesses, economies and communities.
You owe it to yourself to be a hero in your hometown. A great way to do that is to encourage friends, families and colleagues you know to hold their meetings in Chesapeake.
People have a lot of different reasons for getting together. Corporate conferences. Professional association meetings. Sports tournaments. Annual meetings for social groups, religious organizations and educational associations. Family and military reunions. Now imagine all of the economic benefits those activities produce.
Being a good host is more than good manners; its good business. It creates jobs, produces tax revenues, and creates an atmosphere where locals and visitors alike can enjoy dining, shopping, festivals, and cultural and sporting events.
When you promote Chesapeake as a meeting destination, you're making a positive contribution to our city. And that's what a hometown hero does!
