We drive economic growth through tourism.


    The Nitty Gritty:

    GNCVB is a stand-alone 501 (C) 6 corporation, and the first DMO in the state of New Jersey to become a Tourism Improvement District (TID). This designation allows the GNCVB the ability, through a city ordinance, to charge a with a 1.5% assessment on all overnight stays to Newark. City Hall collects the assessments from area hotels, which is turned over to the GNCVB on a quarterly basis. The resources collected provide the GNCVB with the necessary funding to market the region globally as a premiere tourist destination.
