About the Akron/Summit Convention & Visitors Bureau

As the promoters of Summit County's vibrant hospitality scene, the Akron/Summit Convention & Visitors Bureau champions the impact the tourism industry has on our local economy and way of life. We are the destination marketing organization for the area and promote Greater Akron and Summit County as a memorable and entertaining location for leisure and business travel. Fueled by a percentage of the bed tax collected from visitors staying in Summit County accommodations, the Bureau stands tall as a self-sufficient engine of economic growth. Dollars spent by visitors on lodging, dining, entertainment and retail all support our community’s hospitality ecosystem – which bolsters revenue and tax coffers. When you're looking for a place to rest your head while you’re here, you're not just finding a hotel room—you're investing in unforgettable experiences and helping our community thrive. Enjoy Greater Akron and start creating your own adventure!
