San Diego, California (PRWEB) May 18, 2012
Lex Lyon, one of San Diego’s highly respected and knowledgeable event specialists, launches San Diego in a Box, an innovative and personalized service providing direct access to hand-selected suppliers to the meeting and convention industry in “America’s Finest City”.
Lyon applauds the great work that the San Diego Convention & Visitors Bureau does in promoting “America’s Finest City” for hotel members and others. However smaller, yet vital suppliers to the convention and meetings industry can easily go unrecognized on their vast membership roster. With this concern in mind came the development of San Diego in a Box, a comprehensive referral service website at http://www.sandiegoinabox.com.
Meeting planners accessing this dynamic website can easily retrieve Lyon’s recommended coach companies, destination management companies (DMCs), florists, decorators, entertainment companies, caterers, along with his favorite hotels. Information discovered on this unique site goes far beyond just finding names and addresses. San Diego in a Box is exclusive because its recommended organizations are actively vetted for superior service, and enjoy solid reputations among professionals in the industry. In demanding times, these suppliers offer greater attention to detail and budgets.
