Partner Summer Social.
GMCVB partners gathered for a casual cocktail and food at the Nitty Gritty on July 31. We celebrated summer, mingled with familiar faces, and met new partners, too. See pics.

Go Green. This educational event took place on September 23 at Olbrich Botanical Gardens and featured partner panelists who shared sustainability best practices they use to build their business. As always, the event was free and included breakfast and networking.

Tourism is a billion dollar industry for Dane County. The economic benefit that visitors bring to our area translates into a healthy economy that affects resident income, job creation and continued enhancement of the quality of life we all enjoy. A few facts:


  • On average, 14 million people visit Dane County every year
  • In 2013, visitors spent $1.8 billion in new money at hotels, restaurants and retailers plus recreation and transportation
  • This spending supports more than 19,000 full-time equivalent jobs in Dane County
