ROCKFORD — The Rockford Area Convention & Visitors Bureau will hold the Home with the Fam live virtual familiarization tour for national event operators, trade publication partners and media on the bureau’s Zoom webinar platform at 11 a.m. April 17.

Regional and national event operators are invited to attend Home with the FAM to hear tourism operations and scheduling updates, and to take virtual tours alongside RACVB and multi-purpose facilities. Venues will include the BMO Harris Bank Center and Coronado Performing Arts Center, Embassy Suites by Hilton Rockford Riverfront and Rockford Conference Center, Mercyhealth Sportscore Complexes and Indoor Sports Center and the UW Health Sports Factory.

Webinar attendees will be automatically entered into a drawing to win $50 gift cards to a local restaurant of their choice in their own hometown. Also, if, within four weeks of Home with the FAM, any attending event operator contracts new event business with one of the participating FAM venues, RACVB will pay the event organization the equivalent of $3 per actualized hotel room overnight after the event’s conclusion.
