The Beaumont Convention & Visitors Bureau is happy to announce that Beaumont will host the Texas Association of Convention & Visitors Bureaus (TACVB) Mid-Winter Conference January 18-21, 2016. The Beaumont CVB made the award-winning presentation to TACVB board members this past Monday, February 24, which resulted in Beaumont earning the bid to host the conference.

"Winning this conference is a huge win for Beaumont," says Freddie Willard, Director of Sales for the Beaumont CVB. "It's a great group to host because we get to show off our city to our peers. It's also good for our hotels since travel and hotel occupancy is typically slow during the month of January."

The TACVB Mid-Winter Conference allows employees from Convention & Visitors Bureaus throughout the state to come together for the purpose of education, networking and other important travel and convention related topics. Throughout the week, conference-goers attend educational seminars and keynote speaker sessions. Roughly 300 TACVB members from throughout Texas and Oklahoma are expected to be in attendance. The Texas Association of Convention & Visitors Mid-Winter Conference is a TACVB members-only event. Attendees can find complete conference schedule and hotel information, online at

The new address for the Texas Association of Convention & Visitors Bureaus (TACVB) office is P.O. Box 265, Hamlin, TX (79520). For more information, contact TACVB Executive Director, David Byerly at 512-550-3464 or
