"This is an excellent time for meeting plan- ners to take advantage of all the wonderful and exciting things Shreveport-Bossier has to offer," said Dianna Douglas, regional sales manager for the Shreveport-Bossier Conven- tion and Tourist Bureau. "We offer this amaz- ing deal, because we want our planners to always get more when they book with us." Lagniappe, a frequently used Southern term, means a little something extra, which includes flexible meeting venues, affordable hotel accommodations, true hospitality, and delicious cuisine. The promotional deal offers convention planners a free board meeting for up to 20 people complete with a complimentary Continental breakfast and up to three compli- mentary hotel rooms for two nights at the Hilton Shreveport. Meeting planners will also receive free Wi-Fi for their convention delegates and enjoy 5X Hilton Honors points on actualized rooms with a minimum of 200 room nights. To make things even better, meeting planners will receive up to 100,000 Hilton Honors bonus points awarded at contract signing.
