Visit Albuquerque helps to stimulate Albuquerque’s economy by marketing the city as a premier destination for leisure and business travel. We are a private, not-for-profit organization funded by lodgers’ tax through a contract with the City of Albuquerque.
On average, the meetings, conventions and events that Visit Albuquerque helps secure bring over $84 million to the city’s economy. In order to sustain Albuquerque’s overall $2 billion per year tourism and travel industry, the support of local residents is imperative.
Imagine what we could do with the support of locals like you!

Recommend Albuquerque for a meeting or convention and become a Meeting Hero. You’ll feel great knowing you’ve had a positive influence on the area economy. As one of the largest private industries in the state, tourism is New Mexico’s leading private employer and continues to be one of the state’s most effective economic generators. Every meeting or convention has an impact—attendees strengthen Albuquerque’s economy by staying in our hotels, eating at our restaurants, shopping at local stores and exploring all there is to see and do in the city.
To be an Albuquerque meeting hero, all you need to do to get the ball rolling is call us with a contact for your national meeting. We will call them and share why Albuquerque is the perfect place for their next meeting or event. Our Convention Sales Team has a wealth of resources at our fingertips to sell the city.

We also have an award-winning Convention Services Team, ready and willing to work closely with you and your group to put together a successful conference. They coordinate services such as distribution of visitors guides for the attendees, access to our digital photo library with hundreds of images that can be used to promote the conference, and provide referrals to over 900 partners offering a multitude of services from entertainment to transportation.
