Rendezvous South


Meet other event planners and destination teams from across the South at this limited-attendance, boutique-style event, featuring all the charms of a different southern site each year. Unlike a typical trade show, at Rendezvous South we keep numbers small, so you get a chance to really know one another.


Build lasting relationships both with your fellow-event planners, and key decision makers from attending destination teams. During our meet up sessions you get 15-minute, quality, private, face-to-face meetings with the main players from each city, such as the CVB rep, a convention center rep and a host hotel rep–allowing you to have all of your questions answered in one place, at one time.


Creating meeting and event experiences is full of challenges and opportunities only fellow-planners can appreciate. Rendezvous South provides an intimate environment where you can openly ‘talk shop’ and receive honest feedback from your peers in the business.


To qualify to attend this event, meeting and event planners must actively plan meeting and events that are held in the South, and must currently be seeking new destinations to host their events. To receive an invitation, please complete the Planner Qualification Form.

Rendezvous South is an exclusive, limited event for both meeting planners and destinations. A destination team typically includes key decision makers from each city such as a CVB rep, a convention center rep and a host hotel rep.

“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.”
Tami Maynard, Council on Occupational Education

“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
