Planning a meeting with Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau’s (ACVB) dedicated staff ensures a completely customized experience. Our sales and convention services teams are experts on determining meeting needs, including booking host hotels and room blocks.

What are the benefits of utilizing room blocks?

  • Signing a contract through a host hotel establishes a relationship with the property to better suit the needs of guests.
  • Planners can add amenities for attendees including free Wi-Fi, discounts on food and beverage, parking and directional signage at the hosting property.
  • Room blocks can ensure the best room rate for guests and incentivize advanced booking.

Why should you plan ahead?

  • Depending on the meeting size, it is recommended to book rooms 12-18 months in advance.
  • Securing room blocks within this time frame helps with determining logistical information such as potential shuttle routes to get attendees to and from the meeting location.

What is a housing company and why should you use them?

  • EventSphere is ACVB’s official housing company and helps with hotel booking contracts, even at multiple properties. EventSphere handles everything regarding rooms, including drawing up the contracts and providing detailed reporting.
