Visit Sacramento has retained SearchWide Global to find a collaborative, innovative, and experienced team player to serve as the new Chief of Convention Sales and Services Officer.
There’s never been a better time to explore Sacramento. You may think you know something about this city in the West, but we invite you to think again. Sacramento is packed with nicknames – America’s Farm to Fork Capital, the City of Trees, The River City, Sac Town…and so many more.
Visit Sacramento works to improve the quality of life for locals by driving visitor spending that supports our local business community, creates jobs, and makes Sacramento a better place to call home. As the premier destination marketing and development organization for the region's convention and tourism industry, Visit Sacramento plays a lead role in the projects, programs, and attractions that bring visitors to the city. So, who are we, really? We’re instigators. Creators. Innovators. Risk-takers. Educators. And probably most importantly – storytellers.
The Chief of Convention Sales and Services Officer has an overall responsibility to lead and manage the convention sales and services efforts to promote and sell the destination to conventions, tradeshows, meetings, and events in Sacramento. The position manages, mentors, and further develops the sales/services team members and drives and supports the team to achieve and exceed Visit Sacramento’s goals and objectives.
This position is a key member of the leadership team, and the ideal candidate will be creative, energetic, and a knowledgeable professional who will be fundamental to the ongoing success of the conventions sales and services department aligned with the entire organization's goals and objectives.
