As a continuation of the Networking Organizations We’re a Part of, this month we are highlighting North of Boston Convention & Visitor Bureau (NBCVB). This is a private, nonprofit, membership based organization. They are mainly responsible for promoting the Essex County as a travel destination to prospective tourists. The organization has been in existence since 1955 and was established by legislation as one of the 16 regional tourism council in the state. Their mission is to develop effective marketing strategies in order to increase the number of overnight visitors in Massachusetts.
Sperling Interactive has been a member of the North of Boston CVB for about 3 years, now, and we have benefited from many of the services they offer. As a member of the organization, there’s a ton of benefits that come from the organization:
Get your business listed for free in 150,000 copies of the North of Boston Visitors Guide and online flipbooks. This includes an online descriptive listing with hyperlinks, photos, social media links, and group information, and online calendar to inform members of events and exhibits.
Access to the bi-weekly newsletter, which gives members information on ongoing initiatives. With this your business can also get the chance to publish your news and events. This includes e-newsletters, which get sent to the thousands of tourist subscribers.
