CONVENTION & VISITORS BUREAU
About the Convention & Visitors Bureau
Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) refers to a non-profit corporation organized under Montana law and recognized by a majority of the governing body in the city, consolidated city-county, resort area, or resort area district in which the bureau is located.
The State of Montana is structured into six Tourism Regions and 18 CVB's. The Tourism Regions include Central Montana, Glacier Country, Missouri River Country, Southeast Montana, Southwest Montana, and Yellowstone Country.
The Livingston CVB – Explore Livingston, is a division of the Livingston Business Improvement District and is part of the Yellowstone Country Tourism Region. It is funded through a percentage of Lodging Facility Use Tax to support the promotion of Montana's tourism and recreation industry. Explore Livingston is governed by a seven-member Board of Directors and the Montana Tourism Advisory Council who approves the allocation of the bed tax funds.
The annual Explore Livingston marketing plan serves to direct the initiatives and spending for the Livingston CVB and inform and educate the board of directors, community stakeholders, Tourism Advisory Council, and the City of Livingston.
Explore Livingston is Livingston's Official Convention and Visitors Bureau. Our mission is to inform and inspire visitors and market the Livingston area as the preferred travel destination in order to strengthen the local economy and cultural assets.
