Convention Service Referrals
Once a convention has been booked for Albuquerque by the convention
sales division, the convention planner works primarily with Visit Albuquerque’s
convention sales division. Every conference, meeting, and reunion is
assigned to a convention services manager who assists the planner
before, during, and after the event. Referrals to our partners to fill
convention needs, requests for proposals (RFPs) in specific categories,
and opportunities to provide special offers to delegate are all ways
that Visit Albuquerque’s convention services mangers interact with our partners. Visit Albuquerque
staff is committed to impartial and balanced referrals to all our
partners based on the requests and needs of our customers.
