“Anne Seymour and the CVB provided
valuable assistance and information on
area activities for our group, VIP amenities,
and special perks for key staff. The CVB
was enormously instrumental in the
success of the Convention…
Event attendees love the area!
The proximity of hotels and restaurants
to the convention center make it a perfect
location for meetings and events.
The downtown area is charming…
We look forward to our next
experience in Riverside!”


“I want to thank you for all you and the
Riverside CVB did to make our meeting such
a success. In 20 years of conference planning
and management I had never seen this level
of enthusiasm, support, and commitment.
From the outset, the information
you provided on the region was helpful
in scheduling events…In addition,
the University of California-Riverside
provided support, such as use of its
facilities for field trips and receptions
with conference planning and made
our event memorable.”

Lisa Mighetto, Ph.D.,
Executive Director

“I wanted to take a moment
to thank you and the entire team at RCVB,
Scott Megna and the entire team at RCC
and the City of Riverside for being the
best of conference partners…
The Riverside Convention Center
was a perfect fit for the group,
Mission Inn entranced and enthralled all
as usual, Marriott provided great overflow
and vendor rooms and many
took advantage of the city – shops,
restaurants, farmers market,
museums and more.”


“The RCVB and Anne Seymour, are a HUGE asset to the City of Riverside! I cannot thank Anne and her team enough for the highest level of service and hospitality provided to our group. It was a joy to work with them! Paige Hawkins is AMAZING, period! She leaves me speechless! Jamil was THE BEST banquet professional I have ever worked with, he is a classact, constant provider of solutions and a joy to work with! The food was DELICIOUS – thank you Chef Brad Martin! Security was top-notch. We loved Nelson he was always on-point and took great care of our team! … RCC – beautiful, modern facility; and amazing staff that made our event one for the record books!”
