Tourism Partner Services

The Greenbrier County Convention & Visitors Bureau represents approximately 250 tourism-related businesses throughout Greenbrier County. As a non-membership CVB, we do not charge for our services and strive to highlight each business partner's assets. Each partner is represented in the Official Visitors Guide to Greenbrier County, on the CVB website and in every brochure and collateral piece we create that is relevant to their specific type of business.

 

#SimplyGBV Campaign

New for January 2018! In an effort to highlight our local entrepreneurs and independent shops, the CVB has created space in the Visitors Center for locally made products visitors can find right here in Greenbrier County. 

We are looking for items to feature from May through August. If you’re selling a locally made product and want to display it at the Visitors Center, please let us know.

Product Guidelines:

  • Product must be made in the Greenbrier Valley. (Greenbrier, Monroe, Pocahontas and Summers counties)
  • Product must be available for purchase at a Greenbrier County business.
  • Product can be made by hand but must be available in quantity (Example: ceramic vases that are the same shape and style but available in a multitude of colors and glazes) This campaign is not designed for single-piece, original works of art. 
  • Product must be family-friendly.
  • Food or drink products may be featured if they are packaged to last at least 1 year.
  • Size constraints do apply – please contact us to discuss items larger than 1-foot in size in any direction.
  • For galleries and other shops that sell several local products, one item may be featured at any one time with the option of changing out the featured product on a quarterly basis.

Since we have received more submissions than the Visitors Center can accommodate at one time (15 items), we are rotating products every 4 months.

Have one or more products you want to feature? Click HERE to let us know!

Visitors Guide Advertising

The Official Visitors Guide to the Greenbrier Valley is a valuable tool in attracting new and returning visitors to our area. It is printed annually and showcases our many events and tourism-related businesses, including attractions, shops, restaurants and accommodations. Advertising opportunities for the 2018 guide are now closed; however, 2019 will be available in August 2018.
