Priorities

The Aberdeen Area Convention and Visitors Bureau is the only agency in the City that:

  • Focuses on advertising outside a 75 mile radius with an emphasis on the overnight visitor which boosts the BBB  
  • Bids for and services regional and national conventions and meetings 
  • Coordinates and staffs hospitality rooms during SDHSAA sanctioned events 
  • Focuses on advertising in national magazines such as Field and Stream, Cabalas, AAA Home and Away, and more 
  • Promotes the Aberdeen area at travel, camping, and sportsman shows such as Pheasant Fest, Game Fair, and more  
  • Staffs and maintains two visitor centers to serve travelers and provide community and attraction information for Aberdeen, the region, and state 
  • Develops personal relationships with media, outdoor writers and film crews, leading to "free press", airtime, or article space whose ad equivalency would not be possible if purchased outright
