The Perrysburg Visitors and Convention Bureau, Inc. was founded in March of 1997 to “promote tourism and convention business in Perrysburg and its immediate vicinity” which in turn provides a higher quality of life for our residents, a stronger economic development foothold, and supports high quality schools, retail, medical care, dining, and free events in our community. A 501c6 private corporation funded by the Bed Tax collected through Perrysburg hotels, the CVB adopted a 2-word alias in 2022 to best encapsulate our mission – VISIT PERRYSBURG!
We promote our unique story and provide marketing support through paid advertisements, brochures and digital media, as well as organize motor coach tour experiences that showcase our town, all while driving awareness and reinvesting tourism revenue back into our community.
Governed by a 9-person Board of Directors, the Executive Director and support staff manage the promotional direction of the CVB through expos and conventions, hosting the Farmers Market, Music at the Market, and the Perrysburg Sculpture Walk & Against the Wind exhibit, as well as networking with regional industry leaders to promote Perrysburg and Northwest Ohio as a tourism destination AND as a safe, affordable place to call home.
Come for a visit – Perrysburg is where history lives and adventures await!
