Did you know that Council Bluffs has 31 venues and 2,365 hotel rooms?
The Council Bluffs Convention and Visitors Bureau is excited to inform you about the Bring It to CB initiative. Bring It to CB started as a backyard campaign in 2015 and has recently been rebranded to help educate the residents of Council Bluffs on the amenities and venues the city has to offer, as well as how bringing events to CB benefits our local economy.
Understanding the Cause:
Bring It to CB’s mission is to educate our residents about the UNlimited venues and amenities we have right in our backyard. We want to encourage you to bring events, conferences, and tournaments to CB. When you bring an event to Council Bluffs, you create an economic impact for local businesses and for local government. Every hotel stay in CB is taxed seven percent, and half of those funds are used specifically for city recreational, cultural, and entertainment facilities as well as encouragement of future tourism business. Last year, hotel/motel taxes brought in $2.5 million for the city. Locals benefit the most from Bring It to CB!
Events that have been brought to CB:
Council Bluffs Kennel Club Dog Show
Halloween Havoc Soccer Tournament
Heartland U.S.A. Wrestling Duals
OCon Pop Culture & Comics Expo
Rumble on the River Soccer Tournament
The Incentive Program:
When you work with the Council Bluffs Convention & Visitors Bureau to bring a new event to CB, we'll give you $1 for every paid hotel room booked in town for your event! Plus, you'll be helping boost your local economy and showing off Council Bluffs to new visitors. It's a classic win-win-win scenario.
Next time your organization, sports club, or company is planning an event remember to Bring It to CB!
