Here at Discover Kalispell, we love working with meeting planners to bring their events and vision to life. From military reunions to corporate retreats and everything in between, it’s a privilege to share this place with people from near and far, while introducing them to the many offerings and assets of northwest Montana. 

And while we love sharing all the wonderful reasons that Kalispell, Montana, is a prime location for groups, we know that you may want to hear about it from someone else. With this in mind, we’ve gathered testimonials from meeting groups of various sizes and are having them share – in their own words – what it’s like to meet in Kalispell.  

Without further ado, here are testimonials from groups of varying sizes that met in Kalispell. 

Organization: The Roomeaze

Conference: 2023 Community Camp

Name: Jennifer Hernandez, Event Professional 

Group size: 500 

“I have always recognized the immense value of collaborating with local CVBs to create extraordinary events for my clients. Yet, my interaction with Dawn Jackson at Discover Kalispell proved to be an absolute lifesaver. Dawn orchestrated the discovery of numerous guest rooms and seamlessly linked me with the best vendors in town. The event evolved into a resounding triumph, and Dawn played an integral part of that success. I can’t wait to bring another group to Kalispell, Montana – a newfound gem in my list of favorite destinations!”

Organization: USS St. Paul Association 

Conference: 2021 USS St. Paul Association Reunion 

Name: Roger Brown, Vice President; Barry Fitzgerald, President 

Group size: 180

“We had the great fortune of being joined early in our efforts by the good folks at Discover Kalispell. With their guidance, in particular that of Dawn Jackson, the opportunities both in lodging and events of this small mountain town became readily apparent and inviting from a reunion point of reference. We left the first visit to Kalispell confident in the knowledge that we had planned well. Then came the great disruptor…COVID-19, which led to a postponement of the reunion. With Discover Kalispell firmly at our side and working on our behalf we were able to hold the gathering a year later in September 2021 and on the original terms throughout. The grandeur of Glacier National Park, Flathead Lake and the accommodating and hospitable town of Kalispell, Montana, are fondly remembered.”

“Working with Discover Kalispell was the best decision that we could have made. They knew the area and provided unbelievable support.” 

Organization: Montana League of Cities and Towns 

Conference: 2022 Montana League of Cities and Towns Annual Conference

Discover Kalispell’s exceptional work in coordinating transportation, receptions and socials played a pivotal role in the success of the Montana League of Cities and Towns Annual Conference. Discover Kalispell’s staff went out of their way to make sure all aspects of the conference went smoothly. These events organized by Discover Kalispell not only facilitated meaningful connections among conference participants but also showcased the unique charm and hospitality of Kalispell.”
