Albuquerque CVB unveils new and unique incentive for planners

Planners can now customize their incentive package in this diverse destination

Albuquerque , NM – Meeting and event planners are invited to partner with the Albuquerque Convention and Visitors Bureau (ACVB), area hotels and the Albuquerque Convention Center in the planning and execution of your next meeting or convention. One offer doesn’t fit all and we know times are tough – so we are here to help customize each individual incentive to fit the planner’s needs and positively impact the bottom line of your convention.

“We realize that, due to current economic conditions, planners are challenged with a variety of factors when choosing a destination for a convention, and Albuquerque’s new customized incentive can definitely lessen those challenges,” said Rob Enriquez, ACVB’s Vice President of Convention Sales, Services and Sports. “We have already received a number of positive responses to our new offer. This destination is tremendously diverse in its attributes, so we look forward to working with meeting planners to build a package that helps them meet and exceed their goals and also showcases Albuquerque’s authentic offerings for attendees.”

The incentive offers range from complimentary convention center space and financial offers to authentic cultural activities and local activities. Examples include locally inspired VIP welcome gifts, hotel meal vouchers, complimentary welcome receptions, and local experiences such as expert presentations on how to purchase turquoise, a one-hour cultural presentation by a Native American flutist or gift certificates for hot air balloon rides.

Package offers vary based on the size of your group beginning at 50 peak room nights, and the meeting must actualize before December 31, 2014. Complete details of the incentive options are available online at
