Services We Provide
Please find additional services the VBCVB provides listed below.
The Partner Pipeline
Just as CVB is the official DMO for Virginia Beach, the Partner Pipeline is the official CVB partner platform. Referred to more commonly as the PPL, this free on-line platform is where our local tourism/hospitality industry partners manage their business’ information and website listing(s), share happenings between businesses, access our large-scale event calendar and annual sales & marketing plans, upload special offerings, and much more!
Your CVB produces many print and electronic collateral pieces each year and makes it a point to update and refresh our website often. Photos of restaurants, hotels, landmarks, etc. are often rotated to represent various aspects of Virginia Beach. In order to ensure that the CVB uses up-to-date photos of your attraction, accommodation, restaurant or event, be sure to send in updated, high-resolution photos for the CVB to archive for future publications. *Requires partner to sign photo release form.
