Visit Buffalo Niagara is the official and accredited destination marketing organization for Erie County, the City of Buffalo and its incorporated cities, towns and villages. As the primary programmatic arm for Buffalo Niagara's travel and tourism promotion, it leads the Buffalo Niagara tourism industry to work together to generate visitor spending by developing and implementing comprehensive destination marketing programs.
The organization sells and markets our assets and attractions to visitors outside the Buffalo Niagara region as a convention, tourism and leisure destination for the economic benefit of the community. VBN is Erie County's lead marketing organization for conventions, meetings, amateur sporting events, cultural and heritage tourism and consumer travel.
We encourage county residents that have attended events out of town to consider working with VBN to bring the event to Buffalo. Meetings, events, tournaments, and conventions are a great way to show the world what a truly remarkable place Buffalo is. We provide all the necessary support to make the event a success.
Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, the destination projected new hotel, event and attraction development in 2020. For the time being, many of these projects have slowed or been put on hold, but we fully expect to rebound in 2021.
