Reno-Sparks CVA Opens Chicago Office, Names Madeja Metcalf as Director of Sales
The Reno-Sparks Convention & Visitors Authority (RSCVA) announces the addition of Madeja Metcalf as the regional director of convention sales, with responsibility for soliciting meetings and conventions throughout the Midwest, the second-largest associations market in the United States. She will be based in the RSCVA’s new Chicago, Ill. office.
“As the RSCVA expands its reach, it’s critical to have a competitive presence throughout the major convention, trade and association markets, especially in a destination like Chicago, where we have reliable, direct air service,” said RSCVA Vice President of Sales Mike Larragueta. “Madeja has a strong meetings and events background and knows the region well. We’re excited to have her representing Reno Tahoe.”
Ms. Metcalf has more than five years of meetings and convention experience, including time as the sales and executive meetings manager for the Hyatt Centric Chicago Magnificent Mile. Most recently, Madeja managed meetings, membership programs and seminars for the American Osteopathic Association.
A Chicago native, Metcalf received a Bachelor’s in Hospitality Management from the University of Missouri, and officially joined the RSCVA on February 12, 2018.
