2014 Springfield Sports Meeting Planner Guide - page 16-17

Count on us
to be your pinch hitter.
We won’t just meet expectations. We will hit them out of the ballpark. The
Springfield Convention & Visitors Bureau
can help you arrange for group
accommodations with options in every price range. We can also arrange
customized tours of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum,
Lincoln landmarks and Route 66.
Fill out your lineup card with fun after the game, too! Huddle up for a trip
to historic downtown, dive into excitement with an afternoon at the water
park, or rally the team for a picnic alongside beautiful Lake Springfield. No
matter what makes your group smile, the SCVB can help you serve up the
right resources to make your event a winner.
Warm up for the excitement
with ideas like these:

signs at local businesses to welcome attendees, and
help you present a professional impression with name
Plan outings and entertainment

Lake Springfield. The best spots to try an authentic
horseshoe sandwich. Tell us your wishes, and we’ll
help them come true!

jaw-dropping plays, proud poses and ear-to-ear smiles
with professional photography and video. Audio/visual
