Administrative history

The Greater Vancouver Visitors and Convention Bureau was founded in 1922. Known originally as the Greater Vancouver Publicity Association, its activities were primarily advertising in the Western United States, the Canadian Prairies and Eastern Canada, publicizing the city through news releases and entertaining convention delegates and news media. In 1936 the name was changed to the Greater Vancouver Tourist Association. During the late 1930s, the Vancouver Auto Club amalgamated with the Tourist Association. The two organizations operated jointly until 1951. In 1962 the name of the Association was changed to the Greater Vancouver Visitors and Convention Bureau.
