As a representative for all the hotels in the Greenville-Pitt County area, the bureau staff can serve as a non-biased source for accommodation information. After determining your meeting and lodging needs, the bureau will canvass area hotels and solicit availability, rates, menus, audio visual equipment, as well as other function information for your group. Once the bureau has obtained this information on your behalf, we will compile this information in proposal format and deliver it to you promptly.
