Welcome to the 2022 CVBBA Annual Conference!
Our committee and board members have been working hard for our members and we are excited to see everyone at our annual conference this September. Our conference agenda is packed with educational topics, best practices, and interactive panels. We also have several social events and networking opportunities to engage with fellow CVBBA members, develop new relationships, and build on existing ones.
Our theme for the 2022 conference is Paving the Way. In the advancement of our industry, and in ourselves, it is new knowledge that paves the way. Change is inevitable, growth is optional. Business is forever changing and we hope the knowledge you gain from the conference gives you further education, innovation, and tools for you to grow yourself and your business.
We’re looking forward to seeing everyone in Charlotte at the 2022 CVBBA Annual Conference.
Together we will keep PAVING THE WAY!
