HISTORY

A collaborative effort between four Chambers of Commerce and such regional nonprofits as Framingham History Center and New England Wildflower Society’s Garden in the Woods, the MetroWest Tourism & Visitors Bureau (MWTVB) is the result of four years of conversation by a volunteer Creative Economy Inititive, which enjoyed the support and participation of a number of MetroWest legislators.

In 2010, the task force formed a Founding Board of Directors, now chaired by MetroWest Chamber of Commerce President Bonnie Biocchi, was renamed the MetroWest Tourism & Visitors Bureau (MWTVB), and became a Massachusetts nonprofit corporation.

Through legislation proposed by Senator Karen E. Spilka, the MWTVB was designated as the state’s 16th Regional Tourism Council (RTC), making it eligible for state funding through the Massachusetts Office of Travel & Tourism.
