Established in 1984, The Brown County Convention and Visitors Bureau is a marketing and service organization responsible for positively impacting the regions economy by promoting lodging and visitor expenditures.
The administration of Bureau operations is vested in the Board of Directors. The Board is comprised of 13 representatives from local hospitality, industry and civic areas of the community. The Board of Directors has committees within its organization. The programs and policies of the Board are implemented by the Bureau staff and managed by the Executive Director.
The Board of Directors contracts with the 5 member Tourism Commission, appointed by the County Council and County Commissioners, and is funded by a 5% room tax that is paid by visitors to the county who choose to spend the night.
Presently, the convention and tourism industry in Brown County generates more than $111 million in direct tourist expenditures as well as 2,015 jobs for residents.
The BCCVB has over 20 years experience in destination marketing and management. It recognizes fully that tourism promotions begin with an appropriate destination product, and that partnerships and related efforts would be forgone without a united approach to developing and marketing Brown County/Nashville as a visitor destination.
