Four concerts were attracted to the Historic Star Hall in Moab to perform in 2009 as a result of divining a presence for community venues which were buried in city and county website pages.

During the year there was opportunity to attend the following Conferences: Exhibitor2009, Affordable Meetings West, World Education Congress (MPI) Salt Lake City, T.E.A.M.S. (Travel, Events, and Management in Sports) in New Orleans. Teeming with event professionals, conversations fortified better understanding of Event Planner objections to locate an event in Moab, Utah. Simultaneously, those objections have garnered solutions. Transportation concerned our planners. Direct flights arrive daily via Denver Colorado with capacity of 38 travelers. So Moab becomes the destination for board conferences, corporate golf retreats and such. We have alignment with three charter jet services for point to point flights. Moab is two hours or less away from the west coast Seattle to San Diego.

The Moab Utah Meetings and Events website's analytical statistics were monitored. Browsers of the world wide web were entering the website for the topic of weddings. Thus our destination thrusts to campaign that Moab is not purely an adventure and leisure destination, but a wedding and honeymoon destination on top of the effort to make Moab known for Meetings.

Wedding planners, brides,and grooms, especially of Utah and Colorado, Moab has representation of our wedding services and venues at the following shows:

January 2, 2010 at the Grand America hotel of Salt Lake City

January 26, 2010 at the Mile High Station of Denver

February 13, 2010 at the Provo High School in Provo, Utah.

Planners may want to attend to discover new partners for catering, officiates, florists, photographers, wedding destinations and venues. Moab cordially invites readers to share this news to enable Moab Visitors to meet face to face with a Moab tourism representative. Brides are eligible for gifts provided by the exhibiting vendors. Wedding planners please advise your bride and groom clients to attend these shows to generate ideas to help design the style of a wedding event.

Moab can be found on many wedding websites or find out directly about Moab Weddings. Plus, Moab's Facility and Event Promoter, Michele Hill, is available by telephone 435-259-1340 and email
