When planning your upcoming meeting this year, rest assured that the Visit Lubbock team is dedicated to ensuring an unmatched and unforgettable gathering. It’s our team’s attention to detail and steadfast dedication to the visiting groups that keep meeting planners coming back. We offer a plethora of complimentary services including hands-on planning for both meeting sessions as well as excursions, to guarantee each group – big or small – experiences true West Texas hospitality.

Not sure where to start when planning your Lubbock meeting? As the one-stop-shop with resources such as the Visit Lubbock Meeting Planning Guide, each planner is shown a wide variety of venue options, catering companies, local attractions and much more to assist in the planning process.  Planners can request a copy of the Visit Lubbock Meeting Planning Guide, but first, check out this preview of everything you’ll find inside!

How to Get HereWhether it’s by car or plane, making your way to the “Hub City” is easier than it may seem. There are five major highways that make traveling by car easy but depending on where you’re traveling from, flying may be the best, most cost-efficient option. The Lubbock Preston Smith International Airport is five minutes from downtown and services major airlines like American Eagle, United and South West. These airlines offer non-stop flights from areas like Dallas or Houston. Once here, getting around is convenient with multiple taxi, bus and limo services.

Where to MeetWhether you’re hosting an intimate meeting or a large convention, Lubbock has the right accommodations to meet your needs. Browse through space options with complete information on capacity and site amenities. The planner includes suggestions for that wow factor, such as hosting your meeting in a winery, such as the new Burklee Hill Vineyards located downtown, a museum rich in history like the American Windmill Museum or at a spacious ranch.

Local HotelsHotels are a vital part of the planning process. Hosts will be given a directory featuring affordable to luxurious options in the area. This guide provides details about each hotel including meeting space capacity, amenities and more. The Visit Lubbock team will also compile a list of hotel bids with rates to ease your booking experience.

This fall, check out Lubbock’s newest boutique hotel, the Cotton Court Hotel. With meeting space and close proximity downtown to the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center, this is the ideal hot spot to host your attendees.

Convention ServicesPlanning a meeting can be extremely overwhelming. To help navigate the process, the Visit Lubbock Team offers complimentary services including name badges and registration help.
