The New York Convention and Visitors Bureau (NYCVB) is a destination marketing organization for the five boroughs of New York City: Manhattan, The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island.  New Jersey  and even the Westchester County cities of Yonkers and Mount Vernon get into the act as the sixth and seventh boroughs respectively, given their close proximity to NYC.

New York City receives over 20 million foreign and 40 million domestic tourists each year. NYC also hosts over 200 large conventions and 500 conferences each year for a wide variety of clients, that range from Fashion Week in the Spring to ComicCon in the Fall.

We provide a full suite of services for conventions and visitors to NYC, to make the convention and visitors experience, the very best it can be.
