The Central Oregon Visitors Association and The Downtown Bend Business Association are excited to provide a collaborative marketing opportunity for the merchants and business members of the DBBA.
COVA is Central Oregon’s Regional Destination Marketing Organization and markets out of state to attract Destination Visitors to Central Oregon. Members of the Central Oregon Visitors Association receive an array of Member benefits and our member dues support COVA’s destination marketing programs designed to reach affluent, multi-night, destination visitors. COVA research reflects that Destination visitors have an average length of stay of three nights or longer, with a propensity to spend more per stay (daily spending $200+ per person).
As members of the DBBA, you are being offered a 50% reduction in COVA membership dues to join your Regional Destination Marketing Organization. COVA’s General Business dues are $300 annually and will be reduced to $150 for DBBA members.
You will receive all COVA Membership Benefits for half the price, as a courtesy of your membership in the DBBA. COVA is mandated to conduct an outside, independent audit of our finances annually. Price Fronk CPA’s have reported to the COVA Board of Directors that 95% of COVA’s budget is expended on direct tourism marketing. You can be assured that your Membership Dues with COVA are reaching your prospective customers.
