The Greater Madison Convention and Visitors Bureau, a member of the Wisconsin Innovation Network, wants to help attract more tech-based regional and national events to the area. Go to http://www.visitmadison/.com/home to fill out a form that can help the GMCVB’s meeting planners reach out to meeting planners for trade associations, academic groups and other regional or national groups with ties to Wisconsin.

“Conventions and conferences not only help the local economy while visitors are here, but the exposure generated by such events helps to showcase the region’s tech-based economy,” said Tom Still, president of the Tech Council and WIN.
