Events and Meeting Support

Our Meeting Sales team works closely with the region's best venues and service providers to ensure your successful meeting or event. Any space, AV, and catering needs will be tailored to your meeting's specifications. Beyond the meeting space, the Hershey Harrisburg Region offers a variety of activities and experiences to engage your attendees in their free time. From start to finish, our team will work with you to ensure a memorable event. 

Prior to your Event - Site Selection

We Can...

•    Ask the right questions to fully understand your needs.
•    Gather proposals for leads distribution.
•    Match properties to specific meeting requirements and budgets.
•    Coordinate site visits, familiarization tours, and bid presentations.
•    Attend bid presentations to answer questions and provide information.
•    Serve as a vast information database and a one-stop shop.

Please note that it is the policy and practice of Visit Hershey & Harrisburg 's sales and services departments to work with each individual meeting, convention, and event, sport and expo planner to determine the important parameters when selecting a hotel or service for the purpose of the event. Leads are only distributed to those hotels and companies who offer services with the ability to accommodate the needs of the customer. Sending a lead to the entire Visit Hershey & Harrisburg Partner base is not our practice.  
Visit Hershey & Harrisburg provides meeting/event planners the ability to remain confidential or opt-out of solicitation during the lead distribution process.
