Welcome aboard to businesses that recently began reaching out to visitors through CVB marketing efforts. They are Chabóm Teas + Spices and Orange Leaf.

They join hundreds of other businesses that advertise on the CVB’s website, in publications such as the Visitors Guide and Passport to Family Fun and in other mediums that target visitors and event planners.

Melinda Arnold, public relations/marketing director at Friends of the Zoo, said those businesses are making smart choices with their marketing dollars.

“The Springfield CVB provides effective methods of reaching leisure travelers interested in visiting Springfield and the surrounding area,” Arnold said. “Their marketing decisions and channels are based on research and reflect current trends. For smaller attractions and businesses, advertising with the CVB is very cost effective.”
