Finding a restaurant that can serve 20 to 40 travelers easily is not always a simple task. These restaurants are courting the group travel market.


Trips without borders

Destinations seek to be less parochial in their approach.


Group markets expanding

Trade groups see opportunities in youth, ethnic and multigenerational markets.


CVBs understand community involvement

CVBs show that they have generous hearts by staying involved in local nonprofit events.

CVBs often step up and step on for groups touring their area.
