The sales team just returned from IMEX America, which was held for the first time since 2019. The energy and excitement about the meetings industry was palpable during the team's 268 appointments. Visit Greater Palm Springs decided to scale back the booth this year and give back by making a donation of $20,000 to the local FIND Food Bank and Greater Palm Springs Tourism Foundation.
As we approach the end of the year, we continue to see steady lead volume and booking for meetings, conventions and events.
