Looking forward to being there to hand out the new Idaho State Travel guide, which will reveal the destination if you know where to look!

Re: “Greater Boise Auditorium District

It is important to have a CVB because they sell all of Boise and share all leads. The Centre is not tasked with sharing their leads (although they do if they cannot first accomodate a piece of business) nor attracting business that would not use their facility. Nothing wrong with the center having sales staff but the services provided by the BCVB are critical to attracting city-wide business. Additionally, only non-profit tourism marketing organizations such as the BCVB are eligible for state grants. GBAD and the Centre are not eligible. It's all about leveraging dollars.
