Convention & Visitors Bureau

The Columbus-Lowndes Convention and Visitors Bureau (CCVB) is dedicated to promoting a positive image of Columbus through tourism, convention development, major events, and by marketing the community to a national audience.


While our main objective is to promote and market the City of Columbus and Lowndes County as a destination and convention site, we also represent and support the interests of the visitor industry as a whole.


Through successful development and the execution of a centralized sales and marketing strategy, the CCVB generates economic benefits for the city and county.  We also provide information and assist with all services and facilities relating to the tourism and convention industries, from meeting planners, tour operators and travel agents to meeting individual visitors and the news media.


Our friendly staff is ready to assist with any needs you may have.  Please feel free to contact us at 662.329.1191 / 800.920.3533 or directly by email.
