CVB stands for Convention and Visitor's Bureau. It's a marketing organization dedicated to the promotion of Beaumont to encourage people to visit the area, positively promote the city, and offer free resources for trip planning, programs, and events, which also benefit and improve the quality of life in the local community. There's everything from free wedding and family reunion planning services to free weekly yoga classes and kid's crafts at Cattail Marsh.
They're not but you benefit from them. The CVB is a non-profit entity. All programs are funded by Hotel Occupancy Tax (HOT), which is a percentage assessed on overnight hotel stays in the area, which is why we always want to encourage more overnight visitors. HOT Taxes actually help offset your local taxes.
