Group Marketing

Visit Portland is the only organization actively working to promote Maine as a meetings destination for Conventions, Meetings, Events, SportsReunions, and Weddings. Our group marketing team attends tradeshows and works with planners to bring their group or event to Maine. Those event leads are then disseminated to our partners to boost their local businesses.

We’ve belonged to Visit Portland for over 30 years because the community interaction, business leads, resources for publications and advertising, as well as referrals from networking are tremendous. We not only cover our membership expense with 1 or 2 events, our partnership generates 30-40% beyond that!”
