About Visit Berkeley

Visit Berkeley is the destination marketing organization for Berkeley, Calif. We market Berkeley as a destination for small conventions, meetings, events and leisure travel.  Visit Berkeley, formerly the Berkeley Convention & Visitors Bureau, was founded in 1992 when the hotels and city of Berkeley agreed to increase the TOT 1% to the existing 11% hotel transient occupancy tax (TOT) to stimulate the local tourism industry. 

Visit Berkeley has become the voice of the hospitality and tourism industry in Berkeley.  Governed by a Board of Directors comprised of Berkeley tourism and hospitality professionals, Visit Berkeley operates as a 501c(6) private, not for profit, mutual benefit corporation.

The mission of Visit Berkeley and the Berkeley Film Office is to cultivate and promote Berkeley as a desirable destination for meetings, conventions, tour groups, leisure travelers and film production while enhancing Berkeley’s economy.
