A Destination Marketing Organization (DMO) or Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) is an official tourism organization dedication to the marketing of a specific geographic organization. It is usually funded by tax dollars and/or membership dues. It is a similar organization to a chamber of commerce.
I am a very big fan of these organizations. They are usually charged with getting you (the traveling public) to go to "their place" as opposed to somewhere else. They have reliable destination-based information and can really help you plan your trip to their destination.
MEET ERIK THE TRAVEL GUY
My name is Erik Hastings, (a.k.a. Erik the Travel Guy) and I am an EMMY award-winning television personality who speaks directly to viewers who simply "get their vacations wrong". In addition to being a single dad of two amazing children, I am the host and managing editor of the internationally syndicated television series "Beyond Your Backyard" for public broadcasting stations (PBS) and other networks/VOD platforms. I am thrilled to be a part of an incredibly talented team of industry pros and the editorial driving force of my media platform. While the travel industry directly supports millions of families worldwide, I believe travel makes the world a better place. Through exploration and discovery, I have learned that travel brings cultures together. Read Erik's Full Bio.
