Info and Guides

Founded in 1983, the Greater St. Charles Convention and Visitor’s Bureau (SCCVB) was one of the first CVBs to be certified by the State of Illinois. Our mission is to promote the St. Charles community as a destination for meetings & conventions, motor coach tours, sporting events and leisure getaways. 

Our state-designated service area is the City of St. Charles, the Villages of Campton Hills and Elburn, and the townships of St. Charles and Campton. The bureau is partially funded by the Illinois Office of Tourism and a portion of the local hotel tax collected by the City of St. Charles.

A not-for-profit sales and marketing organization, the Bureau employs a staff of professionals who create and distribute marketing materials targeted to specific market niches in order to identify potential pieces of group overnight stays and to encourage individual travel to support the sales initiatives of St. Charles' lodging and meeting facilities.
