What Have We Been
Up To?
VisitMidland has been busy attending
trade shows and training!

In the last month, VisitMidland team members Stephanie Martin and
Argie Waldron attended the National Association of Sports Commissions (NASC) Annual Sports Symposium in Sacramento, California.  The Symposium features dozens of authentic education sessions, countless networking opportunities, and business development appointments in the NASC Sports Marketplace, all to help our members produce measurable ROI for their organization, elevate their sports events, and improve the quality of life in their destinations. At this symposium team members also attended the class to earn the Certified Sports Event Executive (CSEE) certification.

Our Customer Service Manager, Manuel Luna,  attended the SimpleView Summit in Arizona for in-depth training on using the SimpleView software we use to track the economic impact the meetings and events we service bring to Midland. 

The Texas Travel Fair was hosted in Amarillo and Lyndsey White, our Marketing and Communication Specialist, and Susie Hitchcock-Hall, of Susie's South Forty Confections, promoted Midland to our Texas travel counselors.  The travel counselors who attend this event work at Texas Department of Transportation Travel Information Centers, city visitor centers, Texas Parks and Wildlife offices, and Texas Highways magazine, and it was a great opportunity for VisitMidland to showcase Midland's great offerings and attractions.
