    AMERICAN RABBIT BREEDERS TO HOP INTO WESTERN MA

    FOR 2018 CONVENTION

     Springfield, MA -- (October 20, 2016) – The American Rabbit Breeders Association (ARBA) has chosen Eastern States Exposition of West Springfield, MA as the host site for its 2018 National Convention, according to Mary Kay Wydra, president of the Greater Springfield Convention & Visitors Bureau (GSCVB). 

     Wydra, accompanied by GSCVB Director of Sales Alicia Szenda, traveled to Del Mar, CA to attend an ARBA board of directors meeting and pitch Western MA as a convention site earlier this month.  A vote was taken and the decision was announced immediately following the presentation. 

     “We’re thrilled that the ARBA will be coming here for their 2018 convention,” said Wydra.  “The group will generate almost 6,000 room nights and – as with all meetings and conventions – an appreciable economic impact that we estimate to be approximately $3.3 million.  Our presentation reinforced Western MA as an ideal convention setting, and we let them know that their group will be made welcome with the myriad of hospitality services we provide.”
