From the desk of the Bayfront Convention Center’s Director of Marketing and Sales:
I am Lisa Di Luzio, the Director of Marketing and Sales at the Bayfront Convention Center.
The BCC has intrigued me since its opening, and for the past two years I have had the opportunity to work with such a diversified and unique building with endless capabilities.
With more than 28 consecutive years in the sales and hospitality industry, I merge classic professionalism with innovative ideas for meeting and convention needs. Daily, I am posed with availability and capacity questions, logistical inquires, and the task of bringing reoccurring and new business to the BCC. With the support of my team, I continue to problem solve to get the most for our building and the Erie community by providing optimal cliental for economic growth and impact. Quite often I am faced with fitting a 1000 person event in a room while executing a 400 person one in another with no interruption in customer service and experience. My insight into maximizing the “lay of the land” (as I like to call it) and the market segments allows for best sales practices, endless growth, and continued opportunity for Erie’s public and prosperity.
Some of the events myself and my team have facilitated include the annual UPMC Hamot Gala, the Barber Ball, the LECOM Student Auction, countless consumer shows and expos, social and daily meetings, and city-wide conferences and conventions. I have also brought the Polish National Catholic Convention, many non-profit organizations, educational sessions, military affiliations, and more to the BCC. Moreover, I look forward to introducing the Courtyard by Marriott Bayfront Hotel for future conventions and city-wides.
I am very appreciative to work for a productive and professional team that collectively holds a common goal. Our goal is to provide top service and quality products not only to host an event but to offer every guest an experience. I have strong passion for the business, the building, and the overall direction of bolstering Erie.
I’m ready to Get Up and Go!
