The Paducah Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) announces Becky Straley as the organization’s new Director of Convention Sales. In this role, Straley will support the CVB’s efforts to promote Paducah as a destination as she prospects for conventions and meetings to increase tourism economic impact.

“The addition of Becky Straley to the staff takes the CVB into another realm of destination marketing, a realm in which Paducah has not been active for quite some time,” noted Mary Hammond, CDME, Executive Director of Paducah CVB. “Becky will collaborate with the new professional staff of the Paducah-McCracken County Convention & Expo Center, the new Holiday Inn Downtown Riverfront and other local partners including hotels and attractions to attract meetings and conventions to Paducah.”

Straley brings more than 20 years of convention and hospitality industry experience to the CVB including Director of Sales positions with Caesar’s Entertainment, Intercontinental, and Marriott branded hotels as well as Director of Convention Services for Intercontinental and Hilton branded convention hotels.

The Paducah Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) is the official destination marketing organization (DMO) of Paducah McCracken County. The CVB exists to create new economic opportunities through destination marketing, management and tourism development. For more information, visit www.Paducah.Travel.
