CVB Special Board Meeting


Return to the Agenda
  13.       
Meeting Date: 03/18/2020  

SUBJECT MATTER:
Receive and consider matters regarding a Request for Proposal (RFP) to study potential advantages of expanding The Woodlands Township’s Convention Center;
BACKGROUND:
The Woodlands Waterway Hotel & Convention Center opened in 2001 along the scenic banks of The Woodlands Waterway and has since been a strong driver in corporate and convention meetings and leisure travel.
 
In 2013, the Convention Center finished #1 in Marriott in North America for sales.
 
As The Woodlands has continued to expand, the space remains the same as in 2001. The Convention Center has seen several groups outgrew the space and move to other locations. Additionally, new hotels and tens of thousands of square feet of office and retail development have led to more demand for The Woodlands for meetings and tourism.
 
At the November 13, 2019 Board meeting, the Visit The Woodlands Board of Directors approved an RFP to study potential advantages of expanding The Woodlands Township's Convention Center. This RFP is at no cost to Visit The Woodlands.

As detailed in the RFP, on January 13, 2020 a pre-RFP meeting was held at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel and Convention Center. Staff received eight (8) proposals from groups across the country before the due date on February 28, 2020.
 
RECOMMENDATION
To be determined by the Board of Directors.
