Greater Portland Convention and Visitor's Bureau
Established in 1982, the Greater Portland Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) is a non-profit organization, its mission is to stimulate the economic vitality of the region by soliciting and servicing conventions, meetings, groups, and visitors and by promoting Greater Portland as a preferred visitor destination.
The Bureau represents over 400 member businesses through direct referrals from meeting planners, tour operators, travel agents, travel writers, and individual visitors.
The CVB operates two full service visitor information centers, one located at the Portland International Jetport and one in the Ocean Gateway in downtown Portland. We also provide visitor assistance and brochure distribution at the Portland Transportation Terminal and at the Maine State Pier for cruise ship passengers.
Publications About Portland and The Greater Casco Bay Available
Several publications are available through the CVB. Our Visitor Guide provides a comprehensive listing of area hotels, restaurants, attractions, a calendar of events and pull out maps. Additionally we produce a cultural guide and a touring map with suggested itineraries. The Destination Planners Guide is a tool for people looking to bring a meeting into the region.
We invite you to learn more about our organization and how we can help you bring a group to Maine, or help your own business capitalize on this lucrative industry.
