Visit Vancouver USA is the official destination marketing organization for Vancouver USA and the surrounding areas. The organization also markets the region as a venue for sports events through the Vancouver USA Sports brand. Visit Vancouver USA's mission is to increase visitor spending in Vancouver and Clark County through competitively marketing the area as a destination for meetings, conventions, sporting events, group tours and leisure travelers.
The team at Visit Vancouver USA provides a variety of services aimed at promoting Vancouver USA as a meetings and leisure destination, increasing meeting and convention conversions, assisting meeting and tour planners, providing marketing opportunities for local businesses and offering visitor assistance.
Visit Vancouver USA is a non-profit 501 (c) 6 destination management organization funded by a Tourism Promotion Area (TPA). This special assessment charges all hotel guests with a flat $2 per night charge and applies only to room night charges at hotels with 40 or more rooms.
Total TPA collections in 2013 were $993,934. Unlike the majority of destination marketing organizations that use a TPA assessment to augment base-funding provided by transient lodging tax, Visit Vancouver USA receives the bulk of its funding directly from the TPA. Additionally, in-kind contributions and co-op dollars from the local hospitality industry also contribute to our marketing efforts.
