Greater Bangor bureau hopes coordinators, reps plan to attend first event planner trade show

By Andrew Neff, BDN Staff

BANGOR, Maine — Members of the Greater Bangor Convention and Visitors Bureau hope Thursday’s inaugural All Roads Lead to Bangor Trade Show at the Bangor Civic Center is at the top of the event planner lists for many conference coordinators, event planners and business representatives.

The show features 40 representatives from top meeting venues, accommodations, caterers, restaurants and select event services who will be at the show from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to promote their products and services.

A Greater Bangor Convention and Visitors Bureau staff member said the show’s main goals are to show off the region’s assets and try to attract more meetings, events and seminars to the Greater Bangor region. The new Cross Insurance Center, which is on schedule to open Labor Day weekend this year, gives the city a suitable space to accommodate most larger functions and to also promote the attractions and highlights of this area.

The show also will feature live demonstrations by Lulu the Lobster Boat as well as door prizes, food samples and a chance for 30 people to receive a hard hat tour of the new Cross Insurance Center next door.

There is no cost to attend the show.

The Greater Bangor Convention and Visitors Bureau is a nonprofit organization that offers a variety of complimentary services for event planners and business people organizing events in Bangor. Those services include requests for proposals for hotel rooms, sample itineraries, specialized tours, event spaces and services, and information on the local entertainment and attractions.
