The Woodstock Area Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) was created in February 2006 by resolution of the Mayor and City Council for the purposes of promoting tourism, conventions and tradeshows. The initial organizing document assigned the Downtown Development Authority (DDA) board to serve as the board of the CVB. The two organizations are funded using different allocations from the city’s 8% hotel/motel occupancy tax collections.


In 2020, with the support of the City Council, the DDA Board voted to spin-off the CVB and establish it as an independent 501(c)6 organization, qualifying it to receive the tourism, convention and tradeshow and tourism product development allocations from the hotel/motel occupancy tax collections. These funds are required by state law to be used for the purposes of visitor center operations and destination marketing.


The CVB does business as Visit Woodstock GA and has been recognized by the City of Woodstock as the official destination marketing organization, charged with promoting our community as an attractive travel destination and enhancing its public image as a dynamic place to live and work. An inter-governmental agreement is in place which assigns staff from the city’s Office of Economic Development to manage the organization’s day to day business operations. In accordance with the adopted bylaws, memberships in the organization are available to hotel/motel, tourism and trade partners.
