Bring It Home

Meetings, events, tournaments and conventions are a great way to show the world that Champaign-Urbana is a brilliant destination. They also mean big business for our region.

Meetings and events create millions of dollars of economic benefit to our community. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is estimated that our area has seen a loss of $119 million in visitor spending and $1.8 million in local taxes generated.

We are calling on you to step up and help in the recovery. Whether you are an association member, event planner or business owner, it is time for you to bring your event home.


It just takes a connection to become a Champaign-Urbana Champion. Here is all you need to do to help bring business back to our community.

Contact us with a potential piece of group business and a contact name. It can be an association, sporting event, corporate meeting, seminar, tradeshow or workshop. All possibilities are explored, and multiple leads encouraged!
