Advertising opportunities for the Springfield, MO Convention & Visitors Bureau

We Market Springfield!

In actuality, we do a lot more than that. But in a nutshell, we are responsible for bringing tourism of all kinds into Springfield—leisure, groups, meetings, conventions, sports travel….you name it! The Springfield Convention & Visitors Bureau is funded by the city’s hotel tax and the revenue brought in by businesses like yours who decide partnering with the CVB is a valuable marketing investment. The dollars you spend with us go directly into marketing your business to visitors (and locals, too!) not only through our own channels, but also through our own marketing efforts.

To inquire about advertising opportunities,
please contact our Partnership Development Team.
