Meet Our Sales Team

Meeting planners and attendees alike will fall in love with Overland Park and all that the city has to offer, just like our sales team! They’ve been at Visit Overland Park for a combined 25 years, during which time they’ve helped meeting and event planners flawlessly execute events ranging from large corporate meetings and annual awards banquets to premier tradeshows and national sports tournaments.

From helping meeting and event planners with RFP submissions to offering venue and entertainment suggestions to ensuring meetings or events proceed smoothly and without a hitch, the Visit Overland Park sales team is ready and willing to help however they can. But first, how about a quick introduction to our hardworking sales team members?

Brian Spillman Visit Overland Park

Brian Spillman - Sports & Housing Manager

Phone: 913-553-2872

Brian was born & raised in this region – he left for a short time for college in Texas, but we forgive him. Brian is the face behind our growing housing services. He enjoys the challenge of finding the perfect accommodations for thousands of people as if each was his own family member. Outside the office, you will find Brian spending time with his wife & daughter, fishing with his dad, seeking out the best cuisine in OP, and cheering on his favorite teams. If you want to make a fast friend in Brian, greet him with “Let’s go Royals!” “CHIEFS!” or, “Rock Chalk Jayhawk!”
