Meetings Testimonials

“Put simply, Visit Anchorage is the best Bureau I have worked with in my tenure…Jim, Glee, Julie and Shelli went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that my trip provided all the information I needed to conclude that Anchorage was in fact, not only viable, but had the potential to be a huge success.”

Mark Bergstrom
Executive Director, Western States Communication Association

“On behalf of the National Association of Development Organizations, I would like to thank you and the entire staff at Visit Anchorage for helping make our 2008 Annual Training Conference such a success.  I have worked with many CVBs throughout the country and the Anchorage CVB has set a new standard that will be difficult to beat. 

Your team delivered as promised.  It was a pleasure working with them. We will be back again in 2017.”

“The staff of the Bureau were…very capable in understanding what is required when a thousand people with laptops show up at once, all demanding high speed internet (and other similar issues).”

Wesley Snyder, Ph.D.
2010 General Chair, IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation

“From a financial perspective, our Anchorage meeting set a new record for profit! Anchorage is clearly cost-competitive for large meetings… The beauty of Alaska combined with the modern hotel and convention facilities made our meeting truly memorable.”

Jeffrey C. Sventek
Executive Director, Aerospace Medical Association

“We had a great experience in Anchorage.  For the first time in my 15-year career we didn’t have one complaint!  As far as I’m concerned, it was the best meeting ever!”

“I have been planning conferences for more than three decades throughout the U.S. There is no better city than Anchorage for help in getting to know the city and planning the conference.”
