Changes to CVB program hope to bring more events to Joplin

News

The Joplin Convention and Visitors Bureau is restructuring its 2020 grant program.

Requests for funding will be considered either for event funding or marketing funding. The CVB Director hopes separating the two will help better focus on attracting more visitors to town and the resources needed to do that.

Joplin CVB Director Patrick Tuttle says, “Things like photo libraries and things you wouldn’t think of. The more they have that really expresses what their attraction is, the better we can do marketing efforts for it.”

The Joplin Convention and Visitors Bureau is accepting applications for the grants through June 25th.
