The 2015 Official Springfield Area Visitors Guide is at the printer and will be available for distribution by the end of the year.

Thank you to all the businesses that chose to reach out to visitors through the guide that is distributed at the CVB’s information centers, area businesses and at conventions and other group events. The guide also is mailed to people who request information about the city.

If you missed the deadline to be in the book, it’s not too late to market your business to visitors. The Passport to Family Fun coupon book still has space for advertisers and you can be added to the bureau’s website at any time.

Businesses that recently began advertising with the CVB include the following:

  • Andy B’s
  • Barley, Wheat & Rye Social House
  • B2-Bambinos Coffee & Smoothie Cafe
  • Century 21 Integrity Group
  • Drury University
  • Metropolitan Farmer
  • RSVPaint
  • Zio’s Italian Kitchen

Along with marketing Springfield businesses to visitors, the CVB also has a Marketing Partnership Program for businesses outside city limits. Hip Chick Boutique in Nixa is the newest partner in the program.
