Welcome Groups on Your Marquee!

Warmer weather brings daffodils and conventions to Springfield. That means it’s time to post welcome messages to groups coming to the city.

The groups below will be meeting or hosting events in Springfield. Not every group listed here was booked by the CVB and because hotels book many groups without CVB assistance, not every group coming to the city is listed here.
