Using the Partner Extranet

The partner extranet is a tool that allows Convention & Visitors Bureau partners to update their information in our records and on our website. This tool makes it easy for you to add new photos and videos to the website and edit listings and coupons whenever you’d like.

If you are an active CVB partner, you should have received an email with your login info for the extranet. If you have not or are not sure, contact Abby Terhark at 417-881-5300 or aterhark@springfieldmo.org to get set up right away.
