Destination El Paso Outlines Convention Strategy for City Council

Destination El Paso presented their strategy to position and promote the city as a desirable destination on October 31, 2017 to the City Council.

“The growth and number of quality convention hotel accommodations we will see in the next few years in close proximity to the El Paso Convention Center is impressive and allows us to once again attract the larger, more impactful groups and organizations to the destination.” said Bryan Crowe, General Manager for Destination El Paso.

“Currently there are only 432 hotel rooms available downtown but by the close of 2019 we will have over 1,200 rooms. This growth in new high quality inventory will position El Paso as a destination for meetings and conventions,” Crowe added.

Since the announcement of the quality of life bond projects and substantial private investments in the downtown core, the team has increased travel and participation in state and national trade shows, implemented aggressive incentive packages and increased the size of the sales team.

Additionally, significant investments have been made in both traditional and digital marketing allowing us to increase our reach and exposure with decision makers.

“At the direction of city council, the city has aggressively incentivized convention hotel development. As these projects are under construction and renovation, we are strategically increasing our effort representing El Paso as a destination for meetings and conventions. These efforts will result in increased jobs, economic impact, and increase visitor revenues.” said El Paso City Manager Tommy Gonzalez.

  • I can see how that city want’s to attract the larger more impactful groups to come to El Paso for their conventions,this is good for El Paso’s economy. As conventioneers stay in downtown hotels eat at restaurants and spend their money in the city. What I don’t understand is this thing about preserving dilapidated eyesore blights, like where the city is going to build the new downtown arena.
    What’s with those people that are determine to keep El Paso from moving forward with progress, El Paso needs to keep investing in downtown and beyond.More jobs brings more business to downtown and the city and helps keep low unemployment down and people working.Maybe better higher paying jobs will come along with these new downtown development, revitalizations, arena,hotels, and office projects. There’s one way to find out, take a chance and see,if you don’t build it,they wont come.
