The Douglasville Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) was awarded $982.55 from Explore Georgia, the state tourism office within the Georgia Department of Economic Development.
The Regional Visitor Information Center (RVIC) Grant Program is a financial assistance program awarded to entities for visitor marketing across the state. The Douglasville CVB was one of eight organizations chosen in the State of Georgia.
“We will use the grant to support two new pieces of marketing collateral,” explained Samantha Rosado, the City’s Tourism Program Manager. “It will help the CVB produce new products for the twenty-four Hotels in the City of Douglasville. To include tear-off map pads and a perks card.”
Grant recipients were selected based on proposed performance metrics. The metrics measure how well the proposal enhances the RVIC’s on-site capacity to promote their community, region and state, and whether the applicant meets the 100 percent match requirements.
