[ARCHIVED] Visit Manhattan is hitting the road

Monday email 20

This Thursday, March 31, Visit Manhattan, along with hospitality partners, will be hosting the Oh Manhattan Road Show at the KSU Olathe Campus. Meeting planners were invited to attend this come and go event from 3 to 6 p.m. and engage with Manhattan partners: lodging, attractions, unique venues and yes, even Willie himself!
What is a roadshow without a great car? Greeting the attendees will be a unique car from the Midwest Dream Car Collection. As the planners step into the KSU Olathe Campus building, music will fill the air. Music will be provided by Doug Regon, a Music Composition senior at Kansas State University. Greeted by Visit Manhattan staff, attendees will be introduced to fun games designed to showcase activities that meetings may enjoy when choosing Manhattan. Our lodging venues, both traditional and unique, will be in attendance guiding planners as they consider Manhattan.
A road trip isn't complete unless you are well prepared. Car totes printed with Oh Manhattan and our website will be provided for each attendee. Complete with information on Manhattan, giveaways and contact information, this fun event is designed to entice new meeting planners to consider Manhattan as their next meeting venue.
Meetings are an economic driver for Manhattan. (EEI - Estimated Economic Impact)
