Meeting Professionals

Consider this your personal invitation to plan a Mississippi meeting. From our year-round mild climate and our delicious culinary fare, to fantastic golf on some of the country's best courses, a wealth of options for outdoor adventure and our rich heritage and culture (including the fact that Mississippi is the birthplace of America's music), our beautiful state offers an unparalleled experience as a conference location. Whether you choose a cosmopolitan city or a smaller town, meeting in Mississippi is made easy by highly experienced and creative professionals who provide the standard of excellence you expect.

In the luxury casino resorts on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and in Tunica, as well as in picturesque towns like Natchez, Vicksburg and Oxford, an extensive array of quality facilities can host meetings and special events of all sizes. Small civic centers, multipurpose coliseums and exhibition halls provide the perfect conference location for your group. Convention services are available in all Mississippi convention cities, with the added bonus of a convention and visitors bureau and their enthusiastic staff to assist in a variety of free planning services for your Mississippi meeting.

Incentive Program

The Mississippi Development Authority/Tourism Division offers a full range of services delivered by experienced Mississippi meeting and convention professionals. In addition, you may be eligible to receive the benefits of the Meeting and Convention Incentive Program available to first-time businesses (or if your group has not been to Mississippi in 10 years.) The program's room night requirements could grant your group from $2,500 to $10,000 if you choose Mississippi as your meeting or conference location.
