Here’s The New Game In Town.
Anyone Can Play...Everybody Wins!
Tourism is serious business, but who says we can’t have some fun while scoring additional visitors? The Corpus Christi Convention and Visitors Bureau’s Most Valuable Partner (MVP) program rewards local businesses and residents for their help in bringing more meetings, conferences and convention guests to our city.
Conventions and sporting events are big business in Corpus Christi. The Corpus Christi CVB sales team drives a direct economic impact of more than $29 million annually to the local market, invested by guests who visited during a convention, meeting, reunion, conference or sporting event. Past visitors include the Navy League, SkillsUSA, American Birding Association, Texas High School Women’s Powerlifting Competition, American Advertising Federation and Southland Conference Tournaments.
The average convention participant spends $143 a day while visiting our city. A convention with 3,000 people staying three days in Corpus Christi adds up to $1.28 million...and that’s just for one convention.
Conventions and tourism anchor the Corpus Christi economy. An estimated 7.2 million visitors spend more than a billion dollars with local businesses each year. And nearly 13,000 local jobs are directly related to tourism, making this sector the second largest private employer in the city. Bringing a convention or sporting event to Corpus Christi is a big win for everyone!
