What Others Are Saying About Columbia:
"The quality of service provided by your CVB is equivalent to that offered by the Atlanta CVB which I consider to be quite excellent. In comparison with two other "smaller" market cities with whom I have been working, your service is far superior."

On behalf of the South Carolina Genealogical Society, I want to thank the Columbia Metropolitan Convention & Visitors Bureau for all of your help with our summer workshop.
We had over 200 attendees, many of whom traveled from out-of-state to attend. Our workshop is the largest event hosted by the South Carolina Archives each year. Please also extend my sincere thanks to your Marketing and Convention Services departments for their assistance.
As evidenced by the articles in The State newspaper, the publicity was right on target. One of our headline speakers, Barbara V. Little, President of the National Genealogical Society, was really impressed with the city of Columbia, the South Carolina Archives, and how well the workshop was organized.
As we look to the future, the South Carolina Genealogical Society is hopeful that the National Genealogical Society (NGS) will choose Columbia to host a NGS national conference. We are moving in this direction.

I wanted to thank Kelly, Twila, Crystal, Mandi in Sales and Keva Jennings in Convention Services for a great FAM trip in Columbia.
The staff was so friendly and knowledgeable. It is nice to know that my hometown has so much to offer.
I am excited about possibly bringing our 2009 Oktoberfest to Columbia and working with your staff.
Thank you again,

Your professionalism and dedication to your job proved invaluable as you built one of the best stops on the entire Power Tour this year. That is why I have encouraged the folks from Little Rock and Racine Wisconsin CVB's to contact you directly to discuss how/what you did to make your stop so successful.
