The Sioux Falls Convention & Visitors Bureau is hosting the 2013 Small Marketing Meetings Conference this week!

The Bureau's Teri Schmidt says this is the first time the event is hosting the conference and the largest single hosting of meeting planners in the history of Sioux Falls.

The conference has 106 meeting planners in attendance, including Glenn Ford with the Heritage Music Foundation in Los Angeles.  Glenn says he impressed with the city!

In Glenn's words, "I'm loving it!  I love the city.  It's small but I'm loving the environment and the atmosphere here."

And that's what Teri is hearing from the other meeting planners.  "The response has been very positive.  They can't get over the friendliness of the Sioux Falls people.  So far---everything is great!"

The planners are from around the United States and several foreign countries!
