MACVB exists to enhance the public perception that the role Convention & Visitors Bureaus play in generating benefit to the Minnesota economy through the promotion of travel.
MACVB provides its members with the services of an experienced lobbyist who is familiar with the issues of the association members and works to resolve those issues in the best interests of the industry. The lobbyist not only monitors and responds to issues as they emerge from the Legislature or from state agencies, but also supports members in addressing issues of significance to a local CVB.
Community of over 60 CVB’s
MACVB represents over 60 Convention & Visitors Bureaus (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.
Education & Support
MACVB provides education to its members and staff in a variety of ways, including a monthly e-newsletter and a weekly legislative report while the legislature is in session. Each year MACVB hosts the Summit Educational Conference in June and the annual meeting in October. These events are hosted in a member city to promote networking and area involvement.
