Meet Lori Leib, CMP. Lori has been a group sales manager with the Hampton Convention & Visitor Bureau for seven years and has worked in the hospitality industry for over two decades.
Q: How did you get your start in the industry?
A: I started in corporate sales back in 1998 at the Holiday Inn Hampton Hotel & Conference Center. At the time, we were one of the largest hotels and conference centers in the area. I immediately fell in love with the pace, the people and the amazing events.
Q: What is an interesting fact that you tell meeting planners about Hampton?
A: Hampton is 400 years old. That’s a lot of history! But the icing on the cake are the vibrant arts communities, distinctive festivals, signature events and cultural attractions like the Fort Monroe National Monument.
Q: Where should attendees relax in Hampton after a successful event?
A: Definitely at one of our many beaches or take a walk on one of several trails or our Water Walk.
