OUR WORK - The Official Tourism Agency of DuPage County
The DuPage Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) is a not-for-profit partner-based organization that was established through the efforts of a coalition of DuPage area hotel executives and business representatives in 1987. It was formally certified in 1989 by the State of Illinois as the official agency to promote the county's multi-billion dollar tourism industry and market DuPage County as a destination for visitors and conventions, and to help drive economic development.
Within its service area, the DuPage CVB represents 38 communities, as well as hundreds of individual businesses that make up its membership. The organization's budget is supported by hotel taxes from supporting DuPage municipalities, membership dues, Illinois Bureau of Tourism grant funds, and financial assistance from the DuPage County Board.
