We know that convention and visitor business can be attracted to our area more effectively through coordinated group action. We invite you to join the Brownsville Convention and Visitors Bureau today. As a member, we will promote your business at our Visitor Information Centers. You will also be listed in our 2017-2018 Official Visitors Guide, have a listing on our website, and have a link from our website to yours. We will also distribute your brochures.

Thank you for helping us build business through travel and tourism.
