Visit Glendale - Frequently Asked Questions
What is a convention & visitors bureau (CVB)?
CVBs throughout the country promote specific tourist and visitor destinations and are directly responsible for developing, promoting and marketing the destination. CVBs are often the official point of contact for convention and meeting planners, tour operators and visitors.
They assist planners with meeting preparation and encourage business travelers and visitors alike to visit local historic, cultural and recreational attractions. The goal is to increase visits from tourists and business travelers, which in turn generate business and sales tax revenue from retail and shopping sales, restaurant visits and lodging.
Why do Glendale and the West Valley need a CVB?
It is estimated that 32 million travelers visit the West Valley each year to attend professional and college football, hockey and spring training games, NASCAR, tennis tournaments, as well as concerts, performing arts, signature special events, mega events, conferences, tradeshows and other related events and activities. As Glendale and the West Valley have evolved into a premiere sports and entertainment destination, the need for an enhanced tourism entity to support, promote and attract conventions, conferences, mega events, businesses and visitors has grown.
