Happy Birthday Mesa CVB

Mesa's Convention and Visitor's bureau celebrated their 25th anniversary this week with a party a Toby Keith's new bar and grill. Apparently, they believe that TK's new place is what is needed to revive Riverview's district.

It was interesting was to read about not only all the stuff that they have done over the two previous decades, but how active they have been in the past few years in improving Mesa as a tourist and revenue destination. From Waveyard to Gaylord, they have been promoting concepts that would help make Mesa unique and attract even more people. While Gaylord seems much more likely than Waveyard at this point, they have been out there looking for creative ways to boost Mesa and its image.

Let's hope they continue this passion and vigor for Mesa for the next 25 years, especially with a focus on Gateway as Mesa's next big attraction.
