Ursula Witherspoon, CEM, CGMP
Sales ManagerContact Ursula
Ursula is one of our energetic Sales Managers who joined our staff in 1997. She is a 30-year hospitality professional that always promotes southeastern tourism and brings conventions to our facility. Ursula obtained her CEM from International Association of Exhibits and Events in 2009 and her CGMP from Society of Government Meeting Professionals in 2011. Her job duties include securing trade shows, conventions, and events for the Myrtle Beach Convention Center. She doesn’t just book event space, but multitasks by managing existing accounts, providing quality customer service and building tourism relationships via outside sales calls.
When not promoting tourism she takes part in it, by kayaking in “Big Blue” and hiking across the United States. She is always ready to paddle on a new adventure and observe different critters such as alligators, a variety of birds, and yes even snakes. She displays her travel destination keepsakes in her office. As you visit Myrtle Beach, please visit Ursula’s office. She has tons of travel stories to share and can trace each journey with caricature drawings, magnets, and goofy critters; often “Big Blue” is displayed on top of her car in the parking lot for an evening paddle.
