Host city attitude proves successful for Sioux Falls
Bringing conventions, meetings and events to Sioux Falls has been the responsibility of the Sioux Falls CVB for more than 40 years. Part of holding a successful event happens well after the bid is awarded – when everything promised during the sale is fulfilled. And Sioux Falls has excelled at following through on delivery, visitor industry representatives agree.
"We´ve always said we were a No. 1 host city because of the hospitality. Our community wraps its arms around events to make things happen," said CVB Executive Director Teri Schmidt.
The CVB´s host city program, which includes management of the Falls Park Visitor Information Center and connections with the medical community, started in the 1990s because a Chamber board member suggested the CVB do outreach to visitors coming to Sioux Falls for medical treatment.
Technology has enhanced the way that people can learn about a community since the 1990s - and the CVB uses social media, apps and mobile websites. . .
