When you join the United States CVB, we will keep you in our communication network offering interesting, inspiring and helpful content. You can then pass these rewards to your members. We take the time to research insights on how to stay current; what others are doing; what works and does not; business developments that offer new opportunities and much more. Communication is key. Let’s do this together.


As a CVB, we all want to have meeting planners bring their convention and meeting business to our area. The landscape is very competitive. As these professionals do their research, they often reach out to the local CVB for feedback before they hit that “send” button. Your relationships with area hotels will be the key as you work together to secure big business. This is just one example of how we can assist you with relationship building within your community. Let’s do this together.


In addition to assisting your staff at the CVB, the US CVB works with national companies to provide you with industry perks. Recognition for your contributions during these turbulent times is a personal reward you can use when you plan to take your own vacation. Discounts for airlines, rental cars, hotels and restaurants are the perks that acknowledge your hard work and dedication. Take advantage of it. You all deserve it! Let’s do this together.
