Shreveport-Bossier, LA (PRWEB) July 31, 2014

The Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau and its partners the Shreveport Convention Center and Hilton Shreveport launched a new “Seize the Lagniappe” promotion to reward meeting planners personally or professionally for booking their conventions in Shreveport-Bossier.

In the sister cities, located in northwest Louisiana, the partners believe in lagniappe or a “little something extra.” That extra is a free planning meeting for up to 20 people with complimentary Continental breakfast at the Shreveport Convention Center, up to three complimentary hotel rooms for two nights at the Hilton Shreveport, free Wi-Fi for convention delegates at both sites, and up to 100,000 Hilton HHonors bonus points will be awarded at contract signing.

This means free event services, amenities, and room nights for future use for meeting planners who are looking for a place to host conferences. The contract must be signed by December 31, 2014 with the Hilton Shreveport and Shreveport Convention Center. But the conference can happen through December 2017. Planners who book at least 200 room nights can qualify for an additional 5X Hilton HHonors points.

“This promotion provides a lot of added value for meeting planners and rewards them professionally or personally for booking conventions with us,” said Dianna Douglas, regional sales manager for the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau.

Shreveport-Bossier is conveniently located in the northwestern part of Louisiana, and is an ideal destination for meetings and conventions with great facilities, amenities and service.

“Located in the heart of downtown, the Shreveport Convention Center and Hilton Shreveport offer a state-of-the-art meeting facility and world, class full-service hotel all under one roof,” said Marianne Nelson, director of sales and marketing for the Hilton Shreveport.
