We're on the Rise
Looking back on 2015, we at Visit Syracuse can’t help but notice what a great year it was for our ever-growing Meet Syracuse program. Our local database has risen from 435 to 590 invitees since the program’s inception and in 2015 alone, more than 120 guests attended one of our three meet-and-greet events.
Now entering its fourth year, Meet Syracuse continues to connect local residents and meeting planners that host or attend meetings, conferences or conventions outside of Central New York, to both the Visit Syracuse team and local hotel partners. By meeting and connecting with our own local influencers, we can work more efficiently to bring these conferences and conventions into the Syracuse area.
The Meet Syracuse team prides itself on choosing unique themes and locations for each event. Last year, our events included a paradise themed night at Margaritaville and a Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives night, featuring a downtown walking tour and samples of the local dishes highlighted on the Food Network’s show.
This year, we are looking forward to more opportunities to network at our first event in March. Come join us and find out how you can help others Meet Syracuse!
