Explore Fairbanks is delighted to work with all meeting and event planners – big meetings and small, experienced planners and brand new coordinators, social functions and city-wide conventions.  This is what other planners have to say about their experiences while meeting in Fairbanks and when working with the Meetings & Conventions team.

“If you are looking to bring your event to the next level or simply trying to figure out what your first step is in planning an event, you need to talk to the staff at Explore Fairbanks. Not only will you get first class customer service but you will also get the “outsider” perspective on your event planning that will help you make everyone in attendance feel like you thought about them when you were planning.”

-    Cathy Brooks, Festival of Native Arts

“Planning a conference for work is sometimes “another duty as assigned.” For those who have never planned a conference before, my recommendation would be to call Explore Fairbanks first. Their professional staff can make the planning process manageable for those who have no planning experience. “

-    Cheri Renson, University of Alaska Fairbanks

“Explore Fairbanks staff was helpful from the beginning of the planning for the conference to the end when we were creating hospitality baskets for our VIP presenters. They offered excellent suggestions and made sure that our planning team had information and details to facilitate the conference.” 

-    Lesa Meath, Alaska State Literacy Association

“Thank you for your help through all this! I was surprised to see “Welcome” signs posted across Fairbanks. We appreciate all the help and found Explore Fairbanks to be a great asset! You certainly made the search so much easier! I would use Explore Fairbanks Meetings and Convention services again and recommend them to other organizations.”
