What Members Are Saying

View why local businesses love being part of the Monterey County Convention & Visitors Bureau and are engaged to help promote our destination.

“Working with the MCCVB has always been a pleasure – a great staff always willing to take the time to lend a hand, and a powerful resource in our marketing efforts. They are a great partner to have in a very competitive industry.”
- Rick Aldinger, General Manager, Big Sur River Inn

“Being a member of the MCCVB is imperative to the success of Quail Lodge & Golf Club. Not only do they provide Quail with the largest number of qualified Group leads from any single source, they also offer a great deal of advertising and trade show co-op opportunities allowing us to be included in publications and events that we would not be able to afford as a single property. We also very much value the services the dedicated staff at the Visitor’s Center provide by promoting our facilities and events to tourists visiting the area.”
- Max Schroeder, Director of Sales & Marketing, Quail Lodge & Golf Club

“One of the ways the CVB has helped market my businesses is by sending writers and journalists from major publications to my restaurants. I have received exposure nationwide and even worldwide through their efforts.”
- Richard Pèpe, Owner, Carmel Bakery, Vesuvio Ristorante, Little Napoli Ristorante and Vino Napoli Wine Bar

“Simply put, the Monterey County Convention & Visitors Bureau is the most active and supportive organization I deal with. They constantly connect us with media and organizations that are appropriately matched for our business - and the staff at the MCCVB are proactive, highly responsive, and a pleasure to work with.”
- Karl Empey, Owner, Trio Carmel

"I am happy to say that being a member of the CVB provides me, and the company I represent, with many opportunities to meet and network with other business professionals in our community. The CVB folks are always very helpful and professional in facilitating these opportunities, which is an essential component to the success of any business or organization."
- Barbara Thomas, Director of Marketing, Princess Monterey Whale Watching
