The Riverside Convention & Visitors Bureau’s wildly successful Bring it Home! referral program encourages Riversiders to help secure meeting and events for our hometown. Bring it Home! referrals have helped the Riverside Convention & Visitors Bureau book 15,000 hotel room nights in a single year alone.
Riverside’s residents share the same passion and love for Riverside as does the RCVB, which is why this special community collaboration is so successful. We humbly believe that this collaborative effort to tell the Riverside story to others says something about our city and the confidence that share that Riverside is in fact the most hospitable city in America.
WHAT IS BRING IT HOME! TO RIVERSIDE?
Bring It Home! encourages locals to help secure meetings and events for our hometown. With the completion of “Riverside Renaissance” — the $1.6 billion citywide transformation — there’s more to offer visiting groups than ever before, especially those looking for a unique and revitalized downtown.
WHY MEETINGS BOOST OUR LOCAL ECONOMY
Referrals from locals helped the Riverside CVB book an additional 15,000 hotel room nights last year alone— resulting in over $1 million in economic impact to our city. When groups visit Riverside, transient occupancy tax revenues (paid by hotel guests) and sales tax revenues contribute to Riverside’s general fund which pays a portion of city services like police and fire. Plus, visitors support local businesses!
