“We couldn’t have asked for anything more from the Tupelo CVB and the BancorpSouth Conference Center and Arena. They accommodated every request, and did so willingly and enthusiastically. I really look forward to the day our Conference comes back to Tupelo.”

“I've planned and executed meetings in many places, but Tupelo outshone them all! Working with the staff of the CVB was a pleasure since they were always responsive, professional and helpful. I recommend Tupelo as a meeting venue to any and all.”
—Deirdre McGowan, Ph.D., CAE, MS Water Resources Association Annual Conference
“After searching for a city to host our fraternity’s regional conference we chose Tupelo, MS. This was the first time our conference had been hosted in Northeast Mississippi and it won’t be the last. The city of Tupelo was the perfect place from conference space to local shops to the excellent food we were well pleased. The Tupelo Visitor’s Bureau did an outstanding job of helping us coordinate hotels, venues, meetings with local government and entertainment. The hospitality shown by everyone was second to none. We had all the conveniences of a big city with a down home feel. Tupelo is definitely the place to go!”
—Mark McCloud, Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity, Inc.
