Bring It Home Jax!

Are you a Jacksonville local and travel for conferences? Could we host that conference here in Jacksonville?

Bring It Home Jax! aims to engage our community partners and leaders to use your influence and affiliations to bring more meetings and conferences to our city.

Every association, corporation, government agency and industry trade group holds multiple meetings and conferences each year. Let’s bring those meetings right here into our backyard and show attendees why Jacksonville is such a great city to live, work and play in. The “Bring It Home Jax” initiative is the chance for all of us to use our influence to recruit the groups and conventions we and involved with to hold their future meetings right here in Northeast Florida.

• Hosting here creates a positive impact on our local economy
• Jax is the most affordable meeting city in the state.
• Jax can accommodate tight schedules and budgets.
• Jax is a smaller, unique destination with all the perks of a big city visitors bureau. The combination means more individualized attention for planners and groups.
