Little Rock "Rock Stars"


Be A Little Rock



Bring your meeting home to Little Rock!

Show off your hometown and benefit everyone in it. 

Meetings, conventions and sporting events drive economic impact in our community. Our 6 million annual visitors pump nearly $2 billion into the local economy, contributing to our tax base and improving our quality of life.

If you’re part of an organization that hosts events, we’d love for you to put in a good word for Little Rock. The LRCVB team will help you every step of the way, assisting with site selection, bid preparation and anything else to help secure that meeting.

And if we land that event? A major hit for your community – and you. We’ll celebrate you and your organization at an exclusive event, enroll you in our Rock Star Hall of Fame and tell the community how much you and your organization mean to Little Rock.

Yes! I'm interested in becoming a Little Rock "Rock Star" by bringing an event to Little Rock!


“When I brought the International Master Gardener Conference to Little Rock there was some resistance from the board – some wanted to go to Las Vegas. I rallied and once they came they were amazed. It is still regarded as one of the best – if not THE best – conference. We went to Vegas two years later and it was a bust. Everyone that had been in Little Rock wished they were back here.”

“The LRCVB staff has been fantastic to work with and integral to Little Rock winning the bid to bring the national meeting here. So far, the LRCVB staff has helped to facilitate the responses through the initial billing process and have accompanied us on the site visits with the NASPL group. They’ve been very helpful in the planning stages of the convention with meeting facilities, cultural venues, menus and other local options.”
