Brochures, Bags, and Badges

With so much to see and do in Birmingham, it’s essential that your attendees have guides to the city. The CVB produces comprehensive Travel Guides that describe attractions, dining, shopping opportunities, and entertainment in the area. These guides are made available to your attendees at registration to further introduce them to their host city. Bags imprinted with the Birmingham logo are popular items for packaging pre-registration materials and convention schedules. Name badge inserts with 3″x4″ plastic pin-back holders also are available in quantity at a nominal cost.


We are pleased to work with you in getting coverage for your event. Sample news releases are available for patterning your own release or you may choose to complete a news release worksheet, and we will be glad to have it written for you. We can also provide a comprehensive list of media outlets in the area to receive your news release. Attendance-building materials, photographs, and videos of the greater Birmingham area are available through our marketing & communications department.
