About Us


Is this really us? No, professional models...but we're pretty cool too!

Travmar helps meeting planners and large convention buyers connect with the people, places and recommendations they need.

In 1989, The New England Meeting Planning Guide was started by John Horchner, a publishing professional who'd left The Hearst Corporation in Manhattan for the greener pastures of entrepreneurship in Providence, RI.

From that office, a series of similar regional source books were created that reached ten times the number of meeting planners in each region as the national meetings magazines. Travmar was born.

1996: MeetingSource.com was started as one of the USA's first meeting and convention site selection directories on the internet.

Since then it has served continuously as an authority on meeting and convention site selection. Today, John is assembling a small team to re-launch the website in its core market with the mission of helping groups of all sizes find the places, sourcing specialists and local resources they need.

2001: WeddingSource.com was acquired for the purpose of serving the group leisure market with the same quality information that served meeting planners so well. A re-launch is being planned.
