Testimonials

Planning a meeting or event in Shreveport and Bossier City, Louisiana is easy and affordable. Here is what planners had to say about their amazing experiences.

"Thank you!  It was an outstanding event and there was not one complaint but everyone expressed that they had such a great time in such an outstanding area like Shreveport-Bossier City.  The only bad time came when they liked it so much, that they voted for me to take charge of the group's future events.  Our next event will be in Omaha, Nebraska.  However, I hope, at some point, to come back to Shreveport-Bossier City!   Thank you!!" - Bo Besharse, USS Tolovana AO-64 Reunion​

“Dianna Douglas provided top-notched coordination and service to the DSN Institute 2016 from site selection to conference implementation. She is second to none. Her knowledge of Shreveport and its people exceeded our expectations.  The services provided by the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau can’t be matched. I have held several DSN Institutes in cities throughout Alabama and Mississippi and did not get a fraction of the services and level of customer service that was given to me by Ms. Dianna and her team”. - Claudia M. Hardy, MPA, Program Director for Deep South Network for Cancer Control

“The complimentary site visit was the selling point for me. Anyone looking to have a conference or meeting at this wonderful location can look forward to a memorable event.” - Helen Hernandez, CEO for the North American Travel Journalist Association (NATJA)

“The conference was a huge success and could not have been possible without you and your team. I want you to know that it was because of you and Suzanne that the board chose overwhelmingly to hold the conference in Shreveport-Bossier.” - Aimee Andres, 2015 Annual Conference of the Inland Rivers, Ports, & Terminals

“My week started Sunday with the start of the 103rd annual conference held at the awesome Shreveport Convention Center. We were welcomed to our great city by the honorable Mayor Ollie Tyler and Mayor Lo Walker followed up by our keynote address by Senator Mike Walsworth and the president of the National American Water Works Association Gene Koontz. One of the best feelings is having the chair for 2018 from Lafayette to request that we host that conference here in Shreveport. By the end of Tuesday I was so thankful for all the local host committee, the Shreveport Convention Center employees and also Carolyn Dowden from the tourist bureau for all the hard work and support.” - Curtis Davis, 2015 American Water Works Association Conference
