Count on Me NC

Digital Trade Show Series for Meetings and Conventions Recovery in North Carolina.

Destinations across North Carolina are ready to safely welcome meetings and events to the state and look forward to seeing you at one of three upcoming, exclusive digital events. Using CARES Act funding, Visit North Carolina has planned the "Count on Me NC" digital trade show series, produced by Northstar Meetings Group, to showcase how the state is working toward recovery using new measures to keep guests safe.

Participants will hear directly from destinations across North Carolina about the variety of opportunities the state offers organizations, associations and planners booking future programs.

At each half-day digital event, planners will move around the digital ballroom to meet in small groups with suppliers from across North Carolina and hear firsthand how the state is working towards recovery. There will be fun, digital networking and attendees at each event will automatically be entered into a prize drawing of Visit NC Experiences.

North Carolina is within a day’s drive of cities throughout the east and the state’s diverse and plentiful facilities, venues and group-friendly attractions mean there’s a perfect match for every meeting.
