Who is KVTC?
Kennebec Valley Tourism Council (KVTC) is a member supported organization whose purpose is to serve the tourism businesses of Maine’s Kennebec Valley region. The region is made up of the towns and cities within Kennebec and Somerset counties. KVTC and its Board manages the annually issued Maine Tourism Marketing Partnership Program (MTMPP) grant. The primary objective of the KVTC is to guide the creation and implementation of marketing programs designed to attract visitors to the Kennebec Valley tourism region.
Here’s Why Your Support is So Important!
KVTC is supported by membership and advertising dollars generated by its ongoing initiatives. These funds provide the cash match required by the MTMPP to leverage the annually-awarded grant.
But Your Membership Does More!
We work with the Maine Office of Tourism to ensure that the Kennebec Valley region’s interests are well represented at the state level and in the state’s marketing efforts. We work to have our region better represented through all four seasons of the year. Through our work with the Maine Office of Tourism, KVTC has access to tourism research and media opportunities that promote the region in ways we could not undertake on our own.
A membership in KVTC offers additional advantages as well. Your membership keeps marketing efforts going through this website, regular marketing emails, The Kennebec Explorer Visitor Guide, social media, trade and travel shows and the other marketing initiatives as outlined in our annual marketing plan. Active members are welcome to become part of our board and help to shape the marketing vision of the KVTC for the future. Check out our marketing numbers for 2018-2019.
