The Galesburg Area Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) took home the Best Cooperative Partnership award in the Budget B category for its effort of organizing the One State Together in the Arts Conference at the Illinois Excellence in Tourism Awards February 4. Director of Tourism Michelle Kim explains how the CVB won the award:

“We gave them the ‘best of the ‘burg’ experience. We held it at different venues, were able to show them our best tourism attractions, our best food, our best beer, and it really was a great, well-rounded experience.”

The Illinois Excellence in Tourism Awards separated organizations by categories, Category A for organizations with operating budgets of over $500,000 and Category B for organizations with budgets under $500,000
