Unconvention testimonial

For organizations and destinations that want to succeed at housing, this is a must-attend event

Join us this spring to establish, increase or refine your housing services through tactical, expert-led learning. 

We don’t believe in sitting in one ballroom all day, it’s too boring! We promise to keep you engaged through a diverse offering of learning opportunities and networking events at various out-of-the box venues.

We make every effort to foster an environment of open discussion with your peers, those who face the same housing situations you deal with on a daily basis. This conference is the perfect mix of education, networking, and fun.

what people are saying

Don’t take our word for it… Here’s what some of last year’s participants said:

“The Unconvention is invaluable for us. We hit our ROI within minutes of the first breakfast when discussing many things with other CVBs.”

Janine Wachter, Director of Convention & Event Services, Greater Madison CVB

“The Unconvention is the only conference that I attend that really gets down to the nuts and bolts of event housing, allowing me to learn new trends, methods, and proven best practices for managing housing for events of all types.”

Shane Sorenson, Convention Services Coordinator, Visit Plano

“Anyone who uses Meetingmax would benefit from attending the Unconvention. And anyone handling group housing for events would benefit from using Meetingmax. ”

Lynda Pyle, Assistant Housing Coordinator, South by South West (SXSW)

“This was truly an "Unconvention." It was an excellent balance of content and destination experiences blended together to make a memorable program and not feel like a training conference. I would highly recommend attending Meetingmax's Unconvention if you are a new user or have taken a break from attending. The new contacts you meet will become new friends in the field and great resources for the future. ”

Bobby Pilch, Sales Manager, Charleston Area CVB
