About the Lincoln City Visitor & Convention Bureau
The mission of the Visitor and Convention Bureau (VCB) is to promote tourism to the area, with an emphasis on the shoulder and off-seasons, stimulating economic growth and creating employment for a sustainable future. All which establish Lincoln City as the preferred beach vacation destination on the Oregon Coast. The VCB engages in the following activities:
- Marketing Lincoln City through paid channels, public relations, social media and organic searches
- Designing and executing programs, promotions, and events
- Developing print and digital collateral and assets
- Fulfilling visitor requests for information
The VCB staff administers all of the marketing efforts, promotions and events as well as operates the Culinary Center and the Visitor and Information Center. The Visitor & Convention Committee (VCC),a group of citizens and business owners, provides oversight and acts in an advisory capacity to the VCB and City Council.
