1-800 We Answer Call Centers Partners with Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority
NEW YORK, Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — 1-800 We Answer Call Centers, a leader in providing world-class communications outsourcing support, announces its contract award to partner with the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) to boost convention attendance through event promotion and telemarketing services.
LVCVA is responsible for developing and marketing the Las Vegas brand, supporting city efforts to encourage new and repeat tourism for the area. With over 150,000 hotel rooms and more than 10.7 million square feet of prime convention and exhibit space available, LVCVA helps ensure its clients fill their Las Vegas facilities to maximum capacity. A healthy business tourism industry is vital to the city and state’s overall economic health. 1-800 We Answer will be making up to 15,000 B2B calls for each of the approximately 60 events on the LVCVA roster per each year, encouraging and promoting convention as well as generating hotel occupancy.
1-800 We Answer was successful in winning the contract and bringing the telesales portion of this important economic development program back onshore from a Canadian telemarketing firm. 1-800 We Answer’s President and CEO, Robert Porter, has put together a team dedicated to doing everything necessary to ensure the LVCVA’s objectives are met or exceeded.
“I am honored to have won the bid for such a coveted job. My management team is strongly motivated and excited to be a part of a group of professionals committed to the economic recovery and continuing development of Las Vegas industries,” commented Porter.
The communications company has already rolled out a multi-faceted approach to help stimulate registrations for conventions and the production and consumption of Las Vegas’ goods and services. Spearheaded by its Sacramento branch, outbound customer service representatives use strategic techniques and customized-scripting designed to improve the promotion and registration levels for each convention or trade show.
The objective of the LVCVA program is sustainable growth in the rate of trade shows, conventions and business-tourism traffic in 2013 and beyond. With these goals in mind, 1-800 We Answer has developed tactical timely and innovative telemarketing solutions. City officials anticipate fully booked convention and corporate meeting attendance to spike not only casino, nightclub and entertainment revenue but also restaurant and spa services activity as well as hotel room occupancy.
Founded in 1969, 1-800 We Answer is an award-winning, family-owned and operated company providing telecommunications solutions to many sectors including government, public service, healthcare and the business community for over 45 years.
Today Porter oversees a brand new 7,500 square foot corporate headquarters facility in the heart of midtown Manhattan. The company’s unique data mining and business telecommunications management solutions are offered nationwide through its 14 satellite offices across 8 states.
