The Mason County Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) is a federally designated 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is the most important link between local businesses and visitors to Mason County. One of the CVB's most important tasks is to promote Mason County by informing visitors about our area's unique attractions, notable cultural heritage, recreational facilities, great shopping opportunities, and outstanding services.

The CVB also provides a link between the local tourism industry and the West Virginia Division of Tourism.  Regular meetings between the CVB and state tourism personnel ensure that this communication is effective and that our area of the state is properly represented.

The Mason County CVB works closely with the Mason County Tourism Committee, a group of volunteers who represent businesses, governments, the tourism industry, and area attractions. The public is invited to attend the regular meetings of the Tourism Committee. For more information, please contact the CVB.
