About DCVB

The Durham Convention & Visitors Bureau (DCVB) is Durham’s marketing agency. It is chartered as a Tourism Development Authority by the N.C. General Assembly and local governments to spearhead the proactive, strategic, visitor-centered economic and cultural development of Durham by reinvesting a portion of the visitor-paid “room occupancy and tourism development tax” in destination promotion and marketing.

DCVB is the heart, soul, and energy of Durham as a visitor destination. It's the defender of Durham's image and brand and guardian of its unique sense of place. It drives economic success, enhances quality of life, and generates tax revenues to fund local governments.
