Alaska business monthly 2010 conventions/meetings directory.

 
FREE EXCERPT

* ACVB has met its goals for meetings sold and meetings held for 2009, with $98 million in conventions held and $97 million in future conventions sold.

* ACVB expects to meet their goals again this year. They've maintained a constant sales push throughout downtown, and are well positioned to attract future business as meeting planners start exploring again.

* Big national and international events are booked years in advance and Anchorage has already got some great success for 2012 through 2014. State and local meetings and conventions tend to operate on a shorter timeline, so it's harder to say how those will fair. But with the Chamber of Commerce luncheons and Native Youth Olympics as just two examples, the Dena'ina Center is not just a place for big national/international events.

* Some major conventions coming to the state include: IEEE International Parallel & Distribution Processing Symposium, May 2011 (600 attendees); International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery Annual Scientific Meeting, September 2011 (600 attendees); Lions Club International, September 2011 (3,000 delegates approximately); Avionics Maintenance Conference, April 2012 (about 750 participants); American Astronomical Society, May 2012 (1,100 people); The American Avalanche Association September, 2012 (about 900 delegates); American Indian Science & Engineering Society, October 2012 (approximately 1,800 delegates), and more.
