Bravo! Wedding & Event partners with local businesses to showcase the Willamette Valley event industry
September 19, 2012 | Salem Conference Center
Bravo! has once again partnered with local business sponsors Class Act Event Coordinators, Travel Salem and Salem Conference Center to produce the second annual Willamette Valley Event Showcase of the Hospitality & Meeting Industry. This event features top local area businesses in the event industry under one roof for qualified planners to interview for their upcoming events.
“We are so looking forward to having the BRAVO! Willamette Valley Showcase at the Salem Conference Center for the second year. The first year was such a great success and this is such a wonderful opportunity for conference, meeting and event planners to come experience what our region has to offer,” stated Debbie McCune, Vice President of Travel Salem.
Evidence has indicated that more money is being spent on hospitality. According to the State of Oregon’s Office of Economic Analysis, “leisure and hospitality, after suffering greatly throughout the recession, had a nice bounce back in 2011 and into early 2012.”
“I truly believe in this area of the state,” Mary Lou Burton, owner of Bravo! Wedding & Event said. “The Willamette Valley is a stunning backdrop and it is my goal to promote it as a destination for weddings and events. The people in this region have everything right in their backyard – vineyards, orchards, barns and nurseries all provide really unique venues for companies and brides. Plus – companies looking to maintain profitability need to motivate and inspire their employees with team building, events and incentives.”
The Willamette Valley Event Showcase is free to any person planning a meeting, fundraiser, holiday party, wedding or social event. It will feature new and creative ideas for keeping events exciting and affordable. Bravo! has invited organizations such as Meeting Professionals International and Society of Government Planners to come see all that the region offers as well.
