A Few WordsAbout Us
The Zanesville-Muskingum County Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) is the destination marketing organization for the hospitality industry of Muskingum County.
Our goal is to attract leisure travelers, motor coach groups, meetings, sporting events and small conventions that will stimulate economic growth. We also believe strongly in enhancing the quality of life for our community members and guests through beautification projects and awareness of events, activities and attractions.
The Bureau has been recognized as the county’s official marketing and sales organization since 1981 and in 1993 the CVB merged with the Chamber of Commerce and has since been operating as a department of the Chamber of Commerce ever since.
The CVB markets area attractions through trade show attendance, social media outlets, visitor guide distribution, email newsletters and through our lovely Visitor Information Center.
In addition to marketing the area, the CVB manages and operates the Lorena Sternwheeler in partnership with the Muskingum County Commissioners and the City of Zanesville.
