The Idaho Falls Convention and Visitors Bureau (IFCVB) constantly strives to service each and every member in the best way possible. It is our goal to provide benefits that will enhance the business opportunities for member organizations.
The following represent the mission, vision, and goals of the IFCVB:
To provide leadership to attract tourism dollars to Idaho Falls and the surrounding area, and to develop Idaho Falls as a convention/meeting and events center.
To promote development and growth of tourism and the convention/meeting industry through the creation and coordination of cooperative marketing plans and programs...resulting in economic growth and diversification for Idaho Falls and the surrounding area.
The IFCVB mission and vision will be accomplished through these four goals:
