San Antonio City Council passes historic vote to replace CVB with new tourism group

Thursday, October 6, 2016

City Council members voted 7-2 to approve a new management agreement that will essentially replace the San Antonio Convention & Visitors Bureau with a new public-private group called Visit San Antonio. Supporters of the historic change insist the new organization, which will operate as a 501(c)(6) nonprofit, will have more funding firepower needed for the Alamo City to better protect and grow its multibillion-dollar tourism industry.
