About the Convention & Visitor Bureau


Convention & Visitors Bureau

What is a Convention and Visitors Bureau?

A Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) is a not-for-profit organization supported by transient room tax, government budget allocations, private membership, or a combination of any or all three.

Responsibilities

The bureau in each city, county, or region has three prime responsibilities:

  • To assist those groups with meeting preparations while their meeting is in progress
  • To encourage groups to hold meetings, conventions, and trade shows in the city or area it represents
  • To encourage tourists to visit and enjoy the historic, cultural, and recreational opportunities the destination offers

A CVB does not actually organize meetings and conventions. It does, however, help meeting planners and visitors learn about the destination and area attractions and make the best possible use of all the services and facilities the destination has to offer.

Our Mission Statement

To market and promote Elk City as a leisure, cultural, and recreational destination.
