On main roads and off the beaten track, businesses throughout Vermont have earned Ambassador Information Center designation to help visitors make the most of their time in Vermont by providing local and statewide information and recommendations.
Tourism & Marketing
Regionally and around the world, the Vermont Department of Tourism and Marketing (VDTM) promotes our state through special events, consumer shows, and travel trade shows. View the current list of 2019 North American events below.
Vermont’s tourism industry is a large contributor to the state's revenue, but the success is largely determined by the industry organizations themselves. Visitors constantly experience the Vermont culture from a store clerk to the owner of a bed and breakfast, and everyone in between. General citizens - Vermonters - can even have a huge impact on the industry as they interact with the visitors, who end up getting to know the people and character of the state. In other words, anyone can get involved in promoting the state.
