"The GBCVB arranged a very succinct and thorough itinerary and worked very hard to keep us on time as we visited each property to ensure we accomplished all the tours each day. Another thing we noticed is that it was great to see the bureau and the hotels have a solid work relationship, everyone was happy to see our GBCVB Convention Services Manager and that is always a good sign to see the city works as a team.They did an excellent job explaining the layout of Boston to those of us that are new to the city. We left feeling confident in understanding more about the city and having a better idea of what will become our final hotel package."

"Thank you so very much for taking such great care of my clients and me. The time and effort you put into our agenda to ensure we met with all of the right people was greatly appreciated. While the conference is still over 16 months out, this pre-planning trip was critical for us to ensure a successful event next year. We believe a lot was accomplished this week and has definitely laid the foundation for our planning process moving forward."

"One of the best CVB's in the country. They are a great representation of Boston, in fact a great representation probably for any city. The relationship the Greater Boston CVB has with their hotel partners, is what a CVB should have with the city hotels they represent. "

"We loved the opportunity to see Boston firsthand thanks to Sales Manager, Greg Power. His hospitality and the time spent with us for our site visit was much appreciated. Greg gave us a great Boston experience leaving us walking away wanting to move to the city!"

"The GBCVB posses invaluable knowledge concerning all aspects of their destination and provide immediate, factual information concerning such. All in all, the Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau does a tremendous job of representing all of what the wonderful destination of Boston has to offer... they certainly know how to spell "hospitality" and know exactly what it means! A big thank you to you and your team for being such a great partner! "
" Boston offers many unique meeting opportunities as a city - a perfect mix of the nationally historic & the luxuriously modern. My 300+ attendees and I had a fantastic time in Boston and this conference could not have been planned as well without the GBCVB. Working with this CVB was a refreshing change from so many other cities we've held meetings in, and made my job of planning remotely from Phoenix fun and easy. As a not-for-profit organization, the International Ultraviolet Association is always looking to get the most value for our money. With the GBCVB's help I was able to create a great program AND stay within my budget. Our 5 day event, despite current economic conditions, exceeded attendance forecasts. Final result: I was happy, the organization was happy, my attendees were happy. I wish every city had a CVB like this one."
Diana Schoenberg, Marketing & Operations Manager

" I simply wanted to take a moment to say thank you so very much for all that you did to make our meeting such a huge success. None of this could have been possible without your fruitless efforts in orchestrating and executing our very first site visit back in February of 2008 to my follow-up visit with Jan Wells in September and you did it all with such style and grace. It was truly a memorable time."

"I cannot say enough good things about your staff. I've had some great experiences with CVBs but the entire team is far and away the best I have ever encountered. Boston was a huge draw for our attendees, both domestic and international, and we look forward to working with Massport on another Boston meeting."

"Thank you Boston CVB. Your staff was a joy to work with! Their knowledge of the city, venues, vendors, etc. made our job so much easier. Your housing team also did an excellent job helping us finalize our room blocks and rates with the hotels. We look forward to returning to Boston and will definitely recommend Boston to other association meeting planners in the DC area."
