Dunwoody Convention and Visitors’ Bureau - Forum Wednesday @ 2 p.m.

From the Crier & the Chamber

A public forum will be held Wednesday to discuss the details of establishing a Convention and Visitors’ Bureau for Dunwoody. This forum is will be held from 2-4 p.m., in the auditorium of the Terraces South office building at 115 Perimeter Center Place NE, Dunwoody, Georgia.

The city of Dunwoody collects a 5 percent tax from area hotels. According to state law, 2 percent of the tax revenue must be spent to promote tourism, conventions and trade shows and other tourism-related purposes. The Dunwoody City Council must now determine what approach the city will take to ensure that these funds will provide a positive economic impact. This is a community forum to discuss the direction of how we will move forward with the next step in building Dunwoody’s foundation,” said Lindsay Ballow, Community Affairs Chair of the Dunwoody Chamber of Commerce and an organizer of the event.
