County Tourism Bureau and Visitors Center is a
non-profit organization, (501C6), funded through a 3% Guest Tax collected by hotels, motels, cabins, bed & breakfasts and vacation homes for room nights sold within the county.
We are the Destination Marketing Organization (DMO) for Pulaski County Missouri, organized for the sole purpose of promotion of tourism and the comprehensive marketing of our destination, in order to fuel the local business climate and broaden the local tax base.
The revenue that we receive is used to market Pulaski County Missouri as a tourist destination in a variety of media outlets from internet marketing tools, print, radio, cable, billboards to tradeshow participation.
Our reach in marketing is much further out in order to obtain those overnight stays, with agressive campaigns that our local businesses are unable to fund on their own.
With this marketing comes servicing the tourists. Assisting them with information and resources, planning motor coach, group and reunion itineraries and collecting of information about our Pulaski County partners and events. The
Bureau also operates a state-of-the-art Visitors Center located north of Interstate 44, Exit 161.
I welcome you to visit Pulaski County USA, A Welcome Place In America's Heartland.
