Tourism is a multimillion-dollar industry in Charlotte County—and growing. We welcome area businesses looking to partner with us to continue strengthening our destination and the quality of life we all enjoy.

The Punta Gorda/Englewood Beach Visitor & Convention Bureau is the official destination marketing organization for Charlotte County. Our role is to increase awareness of the Charlotte Harbor area domestically and internationally as a travel destination of choice. Marketing strategies are targeted to encourage leisure, business and group travel, including individuals, families, group tours, meetings and conferences, weddings, reunions, sports competitions, special events and film projects. The Visitor & Convention Bureau's efforts generate revenue for resorts, hotels, vacation rental companies, RV and camping venues as well as restaurants, retailers, attractions, recreational activities and supporting service companies.

Our partners support our overall sales and marketing efforts and provide the foundation for creating a welcoming visitor experience that is unique to Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte and Englewood Beach and other communities within Charlotte County. To be a partner, your business must reside in Charlotte County and be focused on services that support visitors coming from outside the local area.
