The Texas Association of Convention and Visitor Bureaus is the largest association of CVBs in the nation and was organized in 1972 for the purpose of providing cooperative action to enhance and encourage the growth of the convention and visitor industry in Texas. Specifically, this is pursued by encouraging cooperation among Texas CVBs and the Texas travel industry; by maintaining standards of professionalism; by cooperating in the exchange of information between TACVB members; by developing an awareness of legislative action and unifying public relations activities and by providing educational opportunities.

The Beaumont CVB is the official destination marketing organization for Beaumont, Texas. Our mission is to entice groups, conventions and meetings to choose Beaumont as their meeting destination. These groups impact the local economy through hotel occupancy taxes and tourism dollars that significantly affect the economic development of Beaumont. Tourism dollars are “new money” brought into the local economy.
