Old SacramentoMany tourism professionals look for that extra value add-on when planning their group tours.  We want you to take advantage of the many incentives the Sacramento Convention & Visitors Bureau Tourism Department can offer by arranging your group travel through us.  We offer different types of incentives for all of our different types of groups.  From student groups to adult groups, we can add something extra to give your customers a better Sacramento tourism experience and to help you sell your tours to Sacramento.

Adult Groups:

For our adult groups, we offer several different types of meet-and-greet opportunities.  Our staff is happy to meet your group and answer any questions members may have about their visit to Sacramento.  We can also arrange for “Living History” characters to greet your group.  And for guests staying for a minimum of two nights, we are happy to provide a welcome wine and cheese reception at your hotel.  Our wine and cheese receptions have become popular with our groups because we feature wines from local vineyards.  And who doesn’t like to discuss upcoming visits to Sacramento attractions over a glass of wine?

Of course, we are always glad to provide brochures, Sacramento Visitors’ Guides and souvenir gold nugget pins for our groups.

Student Groups:

As California's capital city, student tourism is very important to us in Sacramento.  We are happy to arrange meet and greets for students visiting Sacramento as well.  Our “Living History” characters provide a great educational and fun experience for all of our student visitors.  We offer free Student Activity books and souvenir Sacramento backpacks for groups staying overnight in Sacramento hotels.  We could even offer a cookie and punch reception to overnight guests.  Click here for more information about Sacramento student tourism.  Related:  How We Help Create Student Experiences That Last a Lifetime5 Things the SCVB Can Do to Make Your Sacramento Student Travel Trip Easy
