Meetings & Conventions Updates From Visit Rogers

Meeting Trends

Rogers and Northwest Arkansas continue to see growth in the tourism industry. Our trail system, restaurants, shops and entertainment are an attractive draw from travelers across the state and around the United States. Jennifer Joyner discussed the increase of hotel revenue in most of Arkansas, especially NWA and Jonesboro in Talk Business & Politics. According to data from STR, “the Fayetteville-Springdale-Rogers-Bentonville metro area showed a 64% gain in revenue per available rooms from 2011 to 2016.” We look forward to servicing more visitors in 2017 and beyond.
