Irving Convention & Visitors Bureau

Board of Directors

A department of the City of Irving, the Convention and Visitors Bureau reports to a Board of Directors appointed by the Irving City Council. Board terms are two-year commitments; appointees may serve a maximum of three consecutive terms. The Board of Directors makes recommendations to the City Council about convention facilities, assists with attracting visitors to the city and hires the executive director; it is a policy-making board.

Annually, the Board elects its new Chair and Vice Chair, and committee positions are established following that meeting. The board meets the fourth Monday of each month at 11:30 a.m. at the Irving Convention Center, an Irving hotel or other location. Correspondence to Board members may be directed in care of the Irving Convention and Visitors Bureau, 500 West Las Colinas Boulevard, Irving, Texas 75039.

The Convention and Visitors Bureau represents the $1.5 billion-per-year hospitality industry in our community, the benefits of which allow the average Irving household to save $587 annually in taxes. Funded solely by hotel tax collections, the Irving Convention and Visitors Bureau targets corporate, convention and leisure visitors to our hospitality industry partners - the city's hotels, restaurants, attractions and shops, as well as attractions throughout Dallas /Fort Worth. The strength of the visitor industry and the city's hotel tax collections also provide the funding resources for the Irving Arts Center and the Preservation and Redevelopment Program.
