San Francisco Convention and Visitors Bureau was started in an effort to welcome visitors to San Francisco, California. This city is considered one of the most compelling locations in the United States, even the world due to the diversity, economy, and culture found there. San Francisco and the Bay Area tend to attract conventions, events, meetings, and leisure travelers each year.
Their values at the center are to strive for a high level of performance and commitment, to foster a good working environment, and to create through teamwork most interesting events and conventions. The bureau has been around for 100 years. They have members and nonmembers who work to create a variety of interesting events like ComicCon San Francisco. The business association began the center in 1909, after the 1906 earthquake and fire destroyed a great deal of the city and resident livelihood.
Visitor dollars are used to help the City's budget, provide health and safety, arts, culture, and recreational facilities. They also use donations for low income housing offerings. Roughly 426 million dollars from the center has gone to support the city. About 66,800 jobs have also been provided as a result of the convention and visitor bureau involvement.
