AGM 2018

Information and Registration Form

Visitor International Annual General Meeting - Boston, Massachusetts

September 19 to 21, 2018


Dear Member,

We are delighted to host this year’s Annual General Meeting of the International Association of Visitor Information Providers in Boston, Massachusetts from Wednesday, September 19th to Friday, September 21st. Our meetings are a great opportunity for education, professional development, and fun!

Our itinerary (subject to change) is as follows.

  • CTM will host a cocktail hour on Tuesday, September 18th at 6pm. We will then make reservations for a group dinner in a nearby restaurant. Dinner will be the responsibility of each attendee.
  • Our Meetings will be at the Sheraton Boston from 9am to 4pm Wednesday and Thursday, and from 9am to 12noon on Friday. The Meeting agenda will be distributed closer to the meeting date, but we will be joined by Professor Ian Cross from Bentley University to discuss the results of our current research.
  • On Friday, September 21 we will be transported to the CTM facility in nearby Woburn, Massachusetts for a tour and lunch.
  • The optional Saturday extension includes a bus trip to Salem, Massachusetts for a fun tour of Salem Witch Museum and other sights of historic Salem. Transportation  will be provided back to the Sheraton Boston.

We have some great activities planned while we are not in meetings, including an exclusive tour of the Old North Church that will include a guided tour of the crypts (which are not open to the public). We will also tour the city with a member of the colonial past (hey, isn’t that Paul Revere?) and re-live the Boston Tea Party.

Guests not attending the meetings will have the opportunity to go on a whale watching adventure and tour the JFK Presidential Library (as well as plenty of time to see the shops on Newbury Street, or tour the famous Faneuil Hall).


You Must Make Your Own Hotel Reservations and you can do so now by contacting by the Hotel Reservation Center.

We will be staying at the Sheraton Boston, located centrally in the Copley Place neighborhood.
