As the official destination marketing organization for Bowling Green and Warren County, the Bowling Green Area Convention & Visitors Bureau’s mission is to promote tourist and convention activity in the area. Our vision is to generate economic impact by promoting and developing our region as a welcoming destination for visitors. In other words, we try to convince folks why Bowling Green is a wonderful place to visit, and as a result, put heads in beds, bags in hands, fans in seats, and napkins in laps!
Accredited by Destination Marketing Association International in 2009 through its Destination Marketing Accreditation Program, we are committed to industry excellence. But enough about us… let’s talk about how we can further assist you.
