PROPOSALS, PRESENTATIONS & BID ASSISTANCE
Are you soliciting an event for the Auburn-Opelika area? Tourism Bureau professionals will help you develop proposals or
presentations and travel with you if necessary to assist in responding to any inquiries your audience may have about the
area and its offerings. From PowerPoint presentations to brochures, we can help you create and provide materials showcasing
the Auburn-Opelika community.
DESIGN SERVICES & MEDIA EXPOSURE
Many groups do not have the resources available for professional promotional or advertising materials. The Tourism Bureau
can assist you by developing ads, brochures, mailings, and other printed materials for your event. We can also help promote
your organization and event through local media outlets.
The Tourism Bureau is happy to recommend venues for your event. Choose from a wide variety of venues in Auburn, Opelika, or at
Auburn University. We will work with you to secure the most appropriate and accommodating locations for your events.
PRE-REGISTRATION & ON-SITE REGISTRATION
Stay organized with online advance registration for your event. The Tourism Bureau can show you how to make your planning easier
with a simple and effective web-based registration. Attendees can view itineraries, sign up for individual sessions, breakouts, or
meals, and even make advance payment. We will also be glad to provide representatives to assist with your on-site registration during the event.
NAMETAGS, CONVENTION BAGS, & VISITOR INFORMATION
Let us provide complimentary lanyard-style nametags for your attendees, designed according to your specifications. We can include
your organization or event logo and other information as requested. We are also pleased to offer convention bags large and durable
enough to hold all your promotional materials, pre-stuffed with Visitor Guides, maps, and other information at your request.
The Tourism Bureau can connect you to dependable and affordable transportation providers for groups from 10 to 200.
