The MetroWest Visitors Bureau is the only regional organization with the mission of stimulating the MetroWest economy by marketing the region’s assets. We have served hundreds of businesses, nonprofit agencies, and municipalities since our founding seven years ago. This independent nonprofit organization markets the region’s cultural and recreational venues, retailers, restaurants, accommodations, and educational and other services to visitors and residents alike. These marketing efforts also serve to brand the region, build collaborations across sectors and towns, support jobs-producing enterprises, and make residents and employees proud of where they live and work. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts matches each dollar raised by the Visitors Bureau, which doubles the impact of every revenue source.
