IBMA member and blogger Ted Lehmann and his wife Irene recently traveled to Raleigh and spent a night and parts of two days there with the purpose of reconnoitering the logistics.  He’s outlined his findings and says he’ll continue to report regularly on his blog.  Ted says;

“…it's difficult to communicate the sense of excitement our convention has generated there.  We spent time with hotel, Convention & Visitors Bureau, and Convention Center people. A representative of the Convention Center said they had been watching IBMA for five years, had bid on WofB when it came time for Nashville to re-up, and had maintained a continuing interest.  She had attended WofB twice, was familiar with our programs and problems, and most eager to work with IBMA to help solve many of them.”

Ted’s post is full of facts and helpful links to Raleigh area tourism pamphlets and brochures.  If you have a particular question in mind regarding the IBMA Convention next year, you can email Ted with your question and he’ll attempt to get the answer for us all.
