Convention Services

Once you decide to host your event on Galveston Island, our commitment to you has just begun. Our professional staff is committed to ensuring your meeting is smooth and memorable. From pre-planning to post-event, let us help you handle the details with the perfect blend of professionalism and warm hospitality. As our way of saying thanks for choosing Galveston Island, all of these extras are included when you plan your meeting with the Galveston Island Convention & Visitors Bureau.

 

Attendance Building

Great meetings deserve great attendance, and the professionals at the Galveston Island CVB can help you achieve attendance goals through several promotional methods. Our team can suggest creative, effective ways to generate excitement for your event.

Pre-Meeting Collateral

When you book your meeting through the Galveston Island CVB, we will provide you with printed promotional materials highlighting the Island’s many fun, exciting activities and attractions. Your attendees will look forward to your event with eager anticipation. (The CVB reserves the right to limit quantities based on group size and existing inventory.)

Publicity

There is virtually no limit to the publicity a newsworthy event can generate. We’ve assembled a media list for your use in distributing pre- and post-meeting news if coverage is your goal. To help you get started, our CVB team will submit one news release on your behalf to area media to generate awareness about your event.

Official Welcome

Would you like a local representative to welcome your delegates as you kick off your meeting? With advance notification, we’re happy to make the arrangements, or to request a personalized letter from the Mayor’s office upon arrival. We can even obtain a proclamation from the Mayor to be read during your opening session, but we do need advance notice.

Registration Assistance

The team at the Galveston Island CVB understands that registration for large meetings can be challenging. Personnel to assist with the process for events may be provided based on certain criteria.

Name Tags

For groups that exceed 90 rooms per night, we are happy to provide name badges and inserts available at registration.

Delegate Services

Depending upon the size of your group, the Galveston Island CVB can provide you with a staffed on-site Visitor Information booth, offering collateral, maps, directions and suggested activities for personal time.

Welcome Bags

Complimentary welcome bags are offered to all groups booked through the Galveston Island CVB.


Team Building

If you plan to include team building exercises into your event, Galveston Island is the perfect place. Where else can you explore an island on a treasure hunt, fish offshore, or build sandcastles and boats? Have your own idea for a team building exercise? Let your sales manager know, and we’ll do our best to make it happen!

Treasure Hunt

Explore the Historic Downtown District in an engaging way while encouraging team building with a treasure hunt to unique island destinations. Learn from the original treasure hunters with a visit to Galveston Island’s new pirate museum – Pirates! Legends of the Gulf Coast. Visit http://www.piratesgulfcoast.com.

Offshore Fishing

Arrange a fishing tournament for your team and build camaraderie for years. Galveston Island’s charter fishing companies can customize a friendly competition for your team, ranging from a couple of hours to a full day or longer. Visit www.galveston.com/fishingcharters.

Sandcastle Building Contests

Build sandcastles while you build your team with a two-hour lesson from an expert. Weather permitting, our expert sand castle builder will teach your group the basics, then equip them with buckets, cups, shovels, cookie cutters and other “surprise” tools. Visit www.cosmocoolconcepts.com.

Boat Building Contests

“Seaworthy” teams are best able to handle stormy times. Adventure Associates helps you build your team as they build small boats from pre-made kits. The most seaworthy boat wins. Galveston Island is a great destination for this type of activity. Visit http://www.adventureassoc.com/team/creations-boat.html for details.

Beach Clean-up Projects

f community service is your goal, a beach or jetty clean-up makes a great team building project. The Galveston Bay Foundation welcomes help from groups in maintaining Galveston Island’s beaches. Contact them at http://www.galvbay.org.
