Celebrating our 10th Year (2004-2014)
Dear Valued Visitor,
We welcome you to Boston anytime of year! As the chair of the Multicultural Committee of the Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau,(GBCVB) my team stands ready to welcome you to our city for work, leisure, community building, or family matters. We are a city that cares about the hospitality of everyone who visits, convenes or relocates to Boston throughout the year.
We are Boston Strong! As one of the country's major cities, Boston strives for excellence in diversity and inclusion within the hospitality industry.
Our Multicultural Committee dates back to the early 1990s when diversity emerged as a major factor in attracting people of color to our city. During that era, the city received high marks from conventions including the National Black MBA Association, whose 5000 conference attendees were significantly impressed with the city's commitment to diversity and inclusion that was building at that time. Fast forward to the relaunch of the Multicultural Committee in 2003, and our commitment has been stronger than ever.
We are a diverse city that cares deeply about spreading the value of diversity and inclusion wherever we go. The GBCVB staff is ready to serve your needs as you plan your next convention, conference, family reunion or event in our city. Feel free to call me at (508) 947-5755 if I or my committee can be of service to you. Together, we'll support your event and will do our very best to make your stay in our city a memorable and meaningful one.
