Your Group is a Big Fish in Dayton
In Dayton your group is a “Big Fish” that will get noticed. Dayton is large enough to offer big city amenities, but small enough to give you and your group the special individualized attention you deserve! Dayton will roll out the red carpet for your group. When your group is in Dayton they’ll “feel the love” from welcome posters and buttons, special “Show Your Badge” attendee discounts at area vendors, to personalized attention from the Dayton Convention & Visitors Bureau staff and hotel and meeting venue staff. Unlike tier 1 or tier 2 cities hosting thousands of events each year, Dayton is able to recognize each group with the individualized special attention you deserve!
