How To Use The Leads System
One of the primary focuses of Visit Portland is to promote Maine as a destination for Conventions, Meetings, Events, Sports, Reunions, and Weddings through group sales. Our Group Sales department develops lasting relationships with qualified planners via trade shows, in-client events, sales missions, and familiarization (FAM) tours to help stimulate the economic vitality of our partners and the destination as a whole.
The Group Marketing Department offers a FREE planning service to anyone bringing group business to the State of Maine. Planners connect with Visit Portland, provide us with all their requirements, and we post the RFP on the Partner Portal for you to capture the business.
