The Billings Chamber of Commerce holds management contracts to oversee two tourism bureaus promoting Billings and the region.
Visit Billings is made up of the Billings Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Billings Tourism Business Improvement District. The Convention and Visitors Bureau is funded by a portion of the lodging tax collected and the Tourism Business Improvement District is funded by a per room per night hotel stay assessment. These two entities combine their funding and efforts under the umbrella of Visit Billings, which is managed by the Billings Chamber. It’s mission is to generate room nights for lodging facilities in the city of Billings by effectively marketing our region as a preferred travel destination.
Visit Southeast Montana is a tourism region managed by the Billings Chamber of Commerce. They are funded by a portion of the lodging tax collected when visitors spend a night in the hotels, motels, and campgrounds in our region. The Southeast Montana region consists of 13 counties and two Indian Reservations. Their mission is: “Here at Southeast Montana, we hope to promote tourism by increasing awareness of our region, showcasing our cultural heritage, developing member able experiences, and educating our residents about the economic benefits of tourism.”
