Clients Love Galveston

“This was the best attendance that we have had in 20 years! The teachers said they felt like they were at a national conference because of the beautiful resort atmosphere and the new Galveston Island Convention Center.” - Laura Traylor, Convention Planner Agricultural Science and Technology Teachers of Texas

“There are more people on [our] waiting list for the Galveston seminar than any other. They enjoy the variety of great restaurants and ease and ability to get around the city, not to mention spending evenings in the hotel pool and walks on the beach. Since our seminars are strictly continuing education and we do not offer extracurricular activities, attendees find that there is much they can do on their own to enjoy Galveston.” - Heather Hidalgo, CMP, Program Administrator Civil Process, Texas Justice Court Training Center

“It was great working with the Galveston Island CVB on the TPA show. Without your help, the meeting would not have been nearly as successful. Every time I presented the CVB with a challenge, they not only welcomed it, but they also fixed it in an expedient manner. I look forward to the next meeting we have on Galveston Island.” - Paula Sasser-Bigan, Director of Meetings Horizon Meetings, Inc.
