Rendezvous South

Join us for Rendezvous South 2017 in Roanoke, VA “Virginia’s Blue Ridge” on February 27 – March 1, 2017!

Rendezvous South

In today’s business world, time is always of the essence. That’s why we present a unique, one-stop-shop opportunity for busy meeting planners like you, cutting out the back-and-forth by allowing face-to-face meetings with major decision makers from destinations and venues from across the South. Rendezvous South is also committed to making your lives better by providing you with a one-of-a-kind educational experience in our Solution Center, allowing you to openly discuss your professional challenges and receive honest feedback from your peers in the business.

Along with meeting up with the all the right people, Rendezvous South allows the opportunity to build relationships while in a relaxed, sit-down setting. Rather than the typical pipe-and-drape booths, Rendezvous South meet-up areas are comfortable gathering places with residential-styled furnishings—allowing you to discuss business in a casual and relaxed setting.

This is no ordinary trade show – it’s an experience LIKE NO OTHER!

“I would like to visit some of the destinations represented at this event because I otherwise would not have considered them for my programs. I like making the connections to build the new relationships and continue with former prospects to eventually host a program in those areas.”

“After hearing about about Rendezvous South from Loretta Howard at the Irving, Texas CVB, I wanted to take advantage of the opportunity to visit with representatives from several places, at one time in one place. This event will allow me to network not only with those involved in the facility but also with other meeting planners, without too much time away from my daily schedule. It will provide a much more efficient use of my travel expenses.”

  • – Selina Mirza, Texas Floodplain Management Association

“The event staff were so fun & bubbly! I don’t know where they got all that energy! It was so fun & refreshing to meet planners interested in our venue and to meet other venues from all over the South! Keep up the great work and I look forward to the next year!”
