What is Visit Jefferson Parish?

Visit Jefferson Parish is the Parish's official Convention & Visitors Bureau, or CVB for short. We are a destination marketing organization responsible for promoting Jefferson Parish as a travel destination and a dynamic place to live and work. Through travel, we strengthen our economic position and provide opportunities for the people of our community.

A community needs destination promotion just as it needs education, health care, public safety, and utilities. If you build a place where people want to visit, you have built a place where people want to live. If you build a place where people want to live, then you have built a place where people want to work. If you build a place where people want to work then you have built a place where employers want to locate. It all starts with a visit.
