The CRVA works to maximize visitor spending that creates jobs and opportunities for our region. There are many ways to work with us via our Partners in Tourism program, robust digital advertising offerings and editorial consideration and advertising in our annual Charlotte City Guide, the ultimate resource for visitors and residents looking to explore the Queen City.


One of the best ways to get in the editorial consideration hopper is to make sure your events and information are listed on our site. That feeds everything else - social media, website content and more. It’s important to note that website placement is not guaranteed if something doesn’t meet our event guidelines. In addition, joining the Partners in Tourism program guarantees a business listing on the website. Also, if you’re looking for guaranteed exposure, check out many of our economical advertising solutions for social, and the Official City Guide.
