For Immediate Release
Dodge City Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) Set To Suspend Spring Marketing Grant
In the light of the current COVID-19 pandemic and uncertainty with travel, the Dodge City CVB is saddened to announce that the decision has been made to suspend the Spring Marketing Grant. The Dodge City CVB is solely funded by the transient guest tax, a tax imposed on guests of hotels and other lodging facilities.
At this time, we do not know what the financial impact of the pandemic may be, and therefore we must remain fiscally responsible in order to serve our tourism industry in the months to come.
The CVB Marketing Grant was formed in 2014, to work in tandem with the other locally offered grants through Festivals, Mariah Funds, and Why Not Dodge, with the goal of the funding projects for attractions, venues, or those who hold events or promote activities in Ford County that will attract overnight guests to the community.
The mission of the Convention and Visitors Bureau is to promote Dodge City and the area’s resources and assets to bring prospective tourists and convention and travel business to Dodge City. As part of our mission, the Convention and Visitors Bureau aids our attractions and event coordinators in their efforts of getting the word out to prospective visitors to our community and supports the efforts of bringing overnight travel to Dodge City.
For more information concerning the suspension of the spring grant cycle, please contact Megan Welsh, Manager of the Dodge City Convention and Visitors Bureau at 620-225-8191.
