The DuPage Convention & Visitors Bureau’s pilot program was created to help the communities of DuPage County and member hotels bring new meetings, conferences and sports group business to member hotel properties, thereby increasing hotel tax collections and economic impact for the state and DuPage communities. The DuPage CVB will award incentives to groups by way of matching financial grants from municipalities and the DuPage CVB.
Funds must be obligated in the current year but will be expended only after the conclusion of the group’s meeting or event, and room nights have been consumed. Eligibility will be determined by the executive director, the director of sales of the DuPage CVB and the communities’ village or city manager once the application has been submitted by the hotel.
Member hotels must be in good standing with the DuPage CVB at the time of commitment, as well as the time of actualized rooms. If not, full payment for the incentive fund becomes the responsibility of the municipality involved. All municipalities in DuPage are eligible to participate. Communities that do not financially support the DuPage CVB will be assessed a $150 administration fee per actualized lead.
