About the CACVB
We shorten Charlottesville Albemarle Convention & Visitors Bureau to "the CACVB" or simply "the Visitors Bureau" in conversation. Our primary function is that of a Destination Marketing Organization, or DMO, which is to say that we market the best experiences Charlottesville and Albemarle County have to offer a visitor.
Our broader mission is to enhance the economic prosperity of Charlottesville and Albemarle County. We work with hoteliers and local businesses and inform visitors. Dial our main line, (434) 293-6789, seven days a week with any questions you may have about your visit to the area.
In addition to providing visitors with a wealth of information, the Charlottesville Albemarle Convention & Visitors Bureau helps tour operators, meeting planners, weddings, reunions and other groups find attractions, restaurants and hotels.
