WHY YOU SHOULD

One conference, even a small one, can provide a big boost to the economy.  When people visit, they eat, sleep and shop all over Northwest Arkansas.  In addition to the immediate ripple this creates in our economy it also generates tax revenue that helps sustain Northwest Arkansas as one of the most desirable places to live in America.

So when you successfully refer an organization or convention to Northwest Arkansas, you’re helping pave roads, maintain parks, hire police and much more. Are you ready to Bring It Home?
