Tourism Counts for Hamilton County
Municipalities, Townships Partner with Visit Cincy
Visit Cincy, formerly known as Cincinnati USA Convention & Visitors Bureau, is the region’s destination marketing and management organization. Visit Cincy encourages travel to the region through convention sales and marketing, leisure travel marketing and regional and national media relations. The organization also advocates for the tourism and hospitality industry in order to grow assets that make travel to the Cincinnati region more attractive.
The travel industry is important to our region’s economic health. The 26.1 million visitors to Cincinnati spend $5 billion annually here. More than 77,000 jobs in our area are in the hospitality sector. Travel supports and grows jobs, attractions and restaurants throughout our region.
You can find more about travel and tourism in Tourism Counts: The Visitor Economy Drives Vitality in the Cincinnati Region, a report we recently released with other area travel organizations.
We consider cities, townships and villages among our partners. We have created a new partner affiliate program for communities throughout the county. This partner designation is free and is offered to all municipalities and townships.
Community Website Presence
Each community can have its own page on our site, VisitCincy.com. The pages will include highlights visitors should experience in each community. This can include parks, attractions, restaurants, festivals and events. There also will be space for photos and video.
To begin building your page, please contact our marketing department.
