Our Partners

MACVB represents over 50 CVBs in the state of Minnesota who serve a constituency representing lodging, campgrounds, restaurants, transportation services, convention facilities, attractions, as well as the retail and commercial resources that are important to visitors.

Travel/tourism generates $12.5 billion in sales. Traveler spending indirectly supports jobs in many auxiliary industries including print, food and beverage services and financial service.

An MACVB Partner membership is offered to businesses providing goods and services to the tourism industry. MACVB Partners receive the same benefits as members but cannot vote.

For more information on our Silver and Gold Partner benefits, please contact Dee Schutte, email info@minnesotacvbs.com or phone 651.300.6594.
