Products and Services:
Greater Madison's official destination management organization. The GMCVB is responsible for attracting new destination events to the community, as well as providing service and support to existing and repeat events and providing comprehensive and friendly information to visitors to the area.
Philosophy:
Madison as a city has been an environmental steward for generations, harkening back to the lessons of Aldo Leopold, the father of wildlife management, Sierra Club founding member John Muir, and Earth Day founder and former Wisconsin governor Gaylord Nelson.   Environmental responsibility has always been intrinsic to Madison and we see ourselves as leaders of the green movement, which includes our Travel Green certification as well as purchasing from and sustaining our local businesses and economy. For our convention and event planners and our partners, we choose thank you gifts from local business partners.
History:
Founded in 1972, the Greater Madison Convention & Visitors Bureau (GMCVB) is a private 501c6 organization charged with presenting Madison and Dane County as a preferred destination for meetings, conventions and leisure travel. GMCVB staff work to secure new events and conventions, provide service and support to events, deliver destination information to visitors and conduct and analyze tourism research. These efforts have a significant impact on the local economy. In 2012, visitors spent $1.7 billion in Dane County, supporting 19,000 full-time hospitality industry jobs.
