Independent Cattlemen’s Association of Texas

“The feedback from everyone was wonderful... I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful hospitality that everyone in Beaumont showed us.”

Contraband Chapter of the Antique Automobile Club of America

“The CVB exceeded our expectations! You folks were outstanding; we are praising Beaumont’s CVB every chance we have!  Every newsletter in our National organization will know what a great job you did for us...‘Texas with a little something extra!’ is certainly true!” 

Lions International District 2-S1

“Extremely helpful! We used the CVB for pre-planning, bidding, site visits and registration assistance along with gifts for dignitaries. The CVB saved us time and money particularly during the bidding process... They could not have been better. We would recommend Beaumont CVB to others, no question about it!”

Grand Chapter of Texas Order of Eastern Star Convention

“You went way beyond what I expected. Rebecca guided us through the maze of planning a large event... Thank you for making this one of the best conference sessions we have had!”

Texas Asphalt Pavement Association

“The food was fantastic... the convention center was very helpful and flexible with our schedules. 
They were ready with anything we needed with only a moment’s notice... We will definitely use Beaumont for meetings in the future.” 

Kyle Petty Charity Ride

“Thank you for all of your help! Everything went so smoothly, and I’m being completely honest when I say that Beaumont was my favorite stop. Everyone was so welcoming, and the fans were very kind and cooperative. I appreciate all of your help promoting the event... Thanks again for everything.” 

Michael Alsup, Beaumont Camera Club & GSCCC Camera Club Convention

"The Beaumont CVB Sales & Service Visitors staff performed an outstanding job. We used the CVB for hotel contacts, help in designing our conference logo, presentation bags and banner. Freddie Willard and the staff worked with our committee to save us time and money; without their services, our convention would not have been successful. If someone asked about the CVB, I would not hesitate to send them there, for they are a wonderful group of people to work with."

Dale Dardeau, 2017 Convention Chair, South Central District Convention of the American Rose Society

All attendees were happy and complimentary of Beaumont’s hosting their convention. Having it well-planned and a good facility (Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites Beaumont Plaza) contributed to the meeting’s success. The Beaumont CVB Staff were very cordial, efficient and very helpful.  The CVB helped us with promotions, publicity, goodie bags and name tags and all our meeting needs were met. I would recommend the Beaumont CVB Services to others because the CVB staff was helpful, knowledgeable and energetic.

Kerwin Stone, President, VVA Ch 292

"During three out of the last fifteen years, our local chapter of Vietnam Veterans of America has had the pleasure of hosting meetings of the VVA Texas State Council, which consists of more than 35 chapters from all over the State of Texas.  On each occasion, we have worked with and through the CVB in arranging meeting facilities and room blocks in one of Beaumont’s large hotels.  CVB has assisted us with registration materials, such as name badges and welcome bags, and with other materials showing off attractions in our area.  Each of those Council meetings has been a huge success, and we look forward to working with CVB again the next time we host a meeting.  The CVB’s staff has been very caring and generous, and we appreciate their help!"

Alison Tate, President of Region 10 Catholic Youth Conference (RCYC)

"Beaumont is a great location with good hospitality. Rebecca was so helpful and the CVB staff was great as well. All were very professional, friendly and responsive. We utilized the Beaumont CVB for bids with properties and promotional amenities. The CVB saved us time and money by getting room block agreements and location meeting sites. I would recommend the CVB services to others and look forward to returning to Beaumont."

Vi Griffin, Grand Chapter of Texas Order of Eastern Star’s Annual Texas Grand Chapter Convention

"We were pleased with the outcome of our convention. Choosing Beaumont as our host city and Ford Park Entertainment Complex with the two Convention Hotels made everything convenient. The Beaumont CVB helped us keep expenses manageable for our members and exceeded my expectations because I thought they only did name badges. We could not have done it without the CVB’s help! Rebecca guided us through the maze of planning a large event, pointed out areas we had not thought of and then helped us to come up with solutions. I would recommend the Beaumont CVB services to others. Thank you for making this one of the best conference sessions we have had!"

Joe Beck, Marine Corps League, Department of Texas

"The Beaumont Convention and Visitors Bureau saved us a lot of time. Their help with the hotel bidding process was great! The advice we received from the CVB staff was excellent which gave us time to work on other internal matters. I never worked with a better staff of people. They were all very knowledgeable and always willing to help. We got a lot of valuable information about planning a convention from the Beaumont CVB. The CVB also saved us money and the banner the CVB furnished was outstanding. I would recommend the Beaumont CVB services to others because the CVB made my job a great learning experience with a successful convention as the outcome."

Ashton Thomas, American Legion and Auxiliary (Texas) 

"We were most pleased with the personal service the CVB provided and their complete knowledge of the area and how best to support our event."

Bonnie Dean, Texas Young Lawyers Association's 

"I cannot thank you enough for making my first board meeting a huge success! You and the CVB clearly went above and beyond in ensuring our meeting was fun and successful. Thank you again!"
