When it comes to the Galveston Island Convention and Visitors Bureau, confusion sometimes reigns. Some folks think we manage the Galveston Island Convention Center and some think we furnish port-a-potties on the beaches. While both of these are true, there’s much more to what this organization does for Galveston’s businesses and residents — and we’re making a concerted effort to spread the word.

Recently, the CVB Destination Services team hosted an event for tourism partners — Galveston business owners, restaurateurs and lodging operators — to learn more about what the CVB can do for them and how they can best optimize their relationships with the organization.

Mary Beth Bassett is the public relations coordinator for the Galveston Island Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Park Board of Trustees.
