The Greenville-Pitt County Convention & Visitors Bureau staff would like to thank you for considering our destination for your upcoming event. Our entire hospitality community understands the importance of having visitors in our community, and will do everything possible to ensure that your stay with us is both memorable and a complete success. To say thank you for choosing Greenville-Pitt County as your meeting destination, we encourage you to take advantage of the many convention services we offer to groups holding conventions, meetings, events, and reunions in Greenville-Pitt County.
The Greenville-Pitt County Convention & Visitors Bureau has developed a comprehensive complimentary Convention Services program designed to save the host organization both time and money. We are able to offer these services at no additional charge since a portion of the local hotel/motel occupancy tax goes to fund the CVB’s activities.
Please take a moment to browse through the many services we offer to help make your job a little easier. Again, thank you for considering Greenville-Pitt County as your possible convention destination and the Greenville-Pitt County Convention & Visitors Bureau looks forward to the possibility of working with you!
As a representative for all the hotels in the Greenville-Pitt County area, the CVB staff can serve as a non-biased source for accommodation information. After determining your meeting and lodging needs, CVB staff will canvas area hotels and solicit availability, rates, menus, audio visual equipment, and other function information for your group. Once this information is obtained on your behalf, we will compile the information into a proposal format and deliver it to you promptly.
The CVB staff can assist with both layout and design of a promotional package to help maximize attendance at your next meeting, event, or reunion. CVB staff can also prepare and distribute specific information on Greenville-Pitt County that will be helpful to your attendees. Reciprocal links are available so attendees can access information over the web.
The Greenville-Pitt County Convention & Visitors Bureau maintains an extensive collection of brochures and maps on Greenville-Pitt County, Eastern North Carolina, as well as the entire state. Brochures and maps are available for distribution to your attendees and will be made available at the registration area. This same information is available through our website. Your attendees can request that a PDF version of our maps and visitors guide be sent directly to them in an electronic format.
CVB staff can assemble an invitation package specialized for your group, including a letter of invitation or welcome from local dignitaries, promotional materials, and a summary of how Greenville and Pitt County can meet your organization’s needs.
The CVB staff provides complimentary printed name badges in a variety of formats. A list of names should be submitted two weeks prior to the event. The finished name badges are alphabetized and placed in registration cases for your convenience.
The CVB maintains a media list that covers the state of North Carolina. The staff will prepare and distribute news releases as well as public service announcements to the appropriate media sources with the goal of increasing awareness of your event, reunion or meeting. We also can facilitate preplanned radio and television appearances on local programming prior to your meeting or event date. Lastly, we would like to generate web presence for your meeting and establish a reciprocal link from your site to ours.
The CVB staff can provide on-site registration assistance for your group during the busiest time of registration. Registration services include the use of complimentary cash boxes, maps, brochures, and calendar of event information for the Greenville area. Assistance is based on staff availability.
The CVB can serve as a central contact for information on transportation, printing, floral, audiovisual, entertainment, as well as other services and rentals.

Specialized tours and events can be arranged for your delegates and accompanying persons as part of your convention or reunion schedule.
