“For over 35 years, the Little Rock Convention & Visitors Bureau has been an integral part of the redevelopment of downtown Little Rock. We are proud to be involved in the continued revitalization and enrichment of this area. It is the center of a dynamic and expansive city, with a culture rich in arts, entertainment and educational opportunities.
As an organization dedicated to bringing meetings, conventions and events to the city, our role is to market the city of Little Rock to business and leisure travelers. The progress within the downtown area, and within the entire city, including distinctive restaurants, endless shopping and luxurious hotels, continues to attract these visitors by the thousands.
The opening of the William J. Clinton Presidential Center and Park forever changed the downtown area, as well as the whole city, transforming Little Rock into a national and international destination for travelers. Subsequent events such as the opening of the Heifer International Headquarters and the 10th Anniversary of the River Market have continued to place our city in the spotlight, as will the upcoming 50th anniversary of the integration of CentralHigh School.
The Little Rock Convention & Visitors Bureau supports and applauds the redevelopment of the downtown area. Now a place to live, work and play, downtown Little Rock has become a unique and eclectic part of our capital city. We are excited to be in the midst of such a vibrant area and look forward to the future of Little Rock; America’s Newest Destination.”
