Convention and Visitors Bureau of Dunwoody Celebrates Five Years!

Tourism in our small community is an important part of Dunwoody's economic landscape and the Convention and Visitors Bureau of Dunwoody (CVBD) is proud to celebrate five wonderful years of supporting Dunwoody tourism!

Established in August 2009, the CVBD is the official destination marketing organization for the City of Dunwoody. A non-profit 501(c) 6 organization, the mission of the CVBD is to generate economic development for Dunwoody by effectively marketing the facilities of the community and the surrounding areas as a preferred business, convention and tourism destination. The sole source of funding for the CVBD is provided by the dedicated portion of the hotel/motel tax, as required by Georgia law.

The CVBD team is comprised of five employees who work diligently to promote Dunwoody as a destination for leisure and business travelers. Hosting unique promotions, such as Dunwoody Restaurant Week, seasonal campaigns promoting Dunwoody hotels, and expanding the various shopping and dining opportunities, the CVBD is able to focus their marketing on the strengths that this thriving community has to offer. A central location allows the CVBD to target Metro-Atlanta residents and visitors who regularly enjoy Atlanta's attractions and events, while up-scale hotels and meeting space makes this destination a wonderful option for corporate meetings, weddings, family reunions, and other group business. In five short years, Dunwoody has developed into a perfect destination to visit and it's the CVBD's job to assist in driving that interest.

While most of the CVBD's efforts are directed outside of Dunwoody to attract visitors, meetings, and groups, it offers resources that residents can enjoy and use. All are free and easily accessible. All residents are invited to take advantage of the CVBD's services and resources to promote Dunwoody as a destination to help the businesses, hotels, and City thrive. For more information about the Dunwoody Convention and Visitors Bureau services and how the CVBD can benefit you, please visit or call 678-244-9800.

"Thank you for supporting the CVBD for the past five years! We are blessed to have the opportunity to be a small part of this thriving community and there is no place else we would rather be." -The Convention and Visitors Bureau of Dunwoody Team
