Roxas City — The Capiz Visitors and Convention Bureau (CVCB) was created by the local businessmen through the support of the Roxas City and Capiz provincial governments to further boost the influx of tourists in the province.
The bureau which has been registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) last year aims to make the city and province a distinct tourist destination for leisure and convention.
It is tasked to establish contacts and connections with other travel trades such as hotel, tourism associations, tour operators, local government units (LGU) for the Lakbay Aral Program, Liga ng mga Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan, civic action groups, schools and academes, travel agencies with international tie-ups, medical societies, sport groups and regional as well as national coordinators of business organizations.
It is also tasked to conduct tourism-related seminars/workshops and training programs for the Hotel and Restaurant employees and other hospitality sectors that cater to visitors and tourists.
Further, it is mandated to create a tourism culture among Capiceños in the field of health, sanitation, order and cleanliness.
The CVCB presently holds office at the City Tourism Promotion and Development Office at Balay Kapisnon along McKinley St., here.
Seasoned hotelier Oscar V. Fuentes was tapped as consultant and given the responsibility to help and assist the CVCB.
