BRANSON, MO. – The Branson Chamber of Commerce and CVB is heartbroken with the unfolding national crises. Racial tensions in our country and COVID-19 have changed many aspects of our lives and impacted our industry worldwide. We have to keep moving forward and take care of each other. And so, the Branson CVB spent an hour with clients; taking a break from the everyday routine to enjoy all the beauty, fun and meeting opportunities Branson has to offer.
More than 250 people signed up to Explore Branson virtually. It kicked off with a look at the area’s hotels, resort lodges and cutting-edge convention center in the heart of the Ozark Mountains. With unlimited options for serious off-agenda fun for meeting and convention attendees including private fishing or golf tournaments, UTV trails and an award-winning theme park.
Branson has fast become renowned as a world-class golf destination and viewers got a peak at one of the biggest things happening anywhere in the world in golf this year, Payne’s Valley, Tiger Woods’ first public-access course is open now.
From a 600-passenger paddle wheeler to a 50-passenger catamaran, the tour showed some of the beautiful Table Rock Lake on an afternoon cruise. And a plethora of options to create unforgettable moments for meeting planners and attendees.
“We have to be more creative in the way we sell the Branson/Lakes Area now, more than ever before,” said Jeff Seifried, President/CEO, Branson CVB. “This first-of-its-kind live virtual event showcasing our destination is being nationally recognized as the new standard to engage planners and attendees, ultimately driving more meetings and conventions to the area.”
