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.
Berkeley Tourism Improvement District (BTID) is an assessment district proposed to provide specific benefits to payers, by funding marketing and sales promotion efforts for assessed businesses.
