The Janesville Area Convention & Visitors Bureau is an independent non-profit 501(c)(6) corporation.
We are not a division of the City of Janesville or Forward Janesville.
We are a Destination Marketing Organization whose purpose is to bring visitors to Janesville. Per Wisconsin State Statute, our budget is dedicated specifically to sales and marketing programs focusing on the leisure market, motorcoach/group business, and meetings and conferences that create overnight stays. We are not membership-based and represent all tourism businesses.
During 2019, the JACVB turned an investment of $700,000 in room tax revenues into $12 million dollars
of economic impact through meeting/conference and motor coach activity alone. Each dollar invested
with the JACVB results in $17 being spent in our local economy."
We're here to answer questions, point people in the right direction, and create informational pieces that
help travelers find their way to and around Janesville. We provide a "one-stop shopping" point of contact
and act as a liaison for meeting planners and motorcoach operators.
We show our pride in Janesville at every opportunity. Through tradeshows, sales calls, presentations,
and organization affiliations, we spread our Janesville spirit and invite everyone to visit Janesville
and experience it for themselves!
We'd like to help anyway we can! Whether it's bringing a friend to Janesville or a conference for 500 people,
the JACVB can provide assistance and ideas to help make it a special visit. If you're looking for something
to do for the day, a weekend or longer, we have extensive information on Janesville, Rock County and our great state!
