WASHINGTON— ASAE has announced that Visit San Antonio has signed on as a new corporate partner in ASAE’s Alliance Partnership Program.

The Alliance Partnership Program was developed to provide the industry partner community with opportunities to align itself with ASAE and the association sector through customized marketing platforms. It also offers partners the chance to help build and maintain year-round relationships with ASAE members and nonprofit communities worldwide.

Visit San Antonio is the official destination marketing organization responsible for promoting year-round leisure, business, meetings and conventions, international and sports travel to San Antonio. As one of the fastest growing cities in the nation, San Antonio offers association meeting planners modern convenience in the middle of a historic city with diverse culture and exciting attractions. The city’s picturesque 15-mile River Walk connects hotels, restaurants, shops and the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in the downtown core, making San Antonio one of the most walkable meetings destinations in the U.S.

“ASAE is thrilled to officially welcome Visit San Antonio to the Alliance Partnership Program family,” said ASAE President and CEO Michelle Mason, FASAE, CAE. “San Antonio is a world-class meetings and events destination with continued development on the horizon that will dramatically enhance the city’s extensive portfolio of hotels, venues and unique experiences that help meeting professionals create memorable events.”

"The association segment is vital to the recovery and growth of San Antonio's hospitality community so this innovative strategic partnership will be sure to benefit our city, ASAE and its members,” said Marc Anderson, president and CEO of Visit San Antonio. “ASAE’s position as the preeminent organization representing associations aligns with our vision of San Antonio as the preeminent convention destination in Texas. The Visit San Antonio sales and marketing teams look forward to strategizing with ASAE on maximizing our city's exposure to ASAE members and their members’ experiences in San Antonio."
