Who We Are

What is a DMO?

The Fairfax County Convention and Visitors Corporation (Visit Fairfax) is a non-profit marketing and promotional organization funded by the Transient Occupancy tax (hotel tax) working to bring visitors to our great community.

As a Destination Marketing Organization (DMO), our mission is to enhance economic and social growth in Fairfax County and Northern Virginia by marketing, promoting, developing and coordinating tourism, conventions, sports and hospitality opportunities in the area.

Visit Fairfax touches the lives of virtually every resident in our area, in one way or another.  We bring visitors to Northern Virginia - visitors bring money to the businesses in Fairfax County.

In addition to the prime responsibility and mandate of marketing, Visit Fairfax also fulfills the roles of Economic Driver, Industry Coordinator, Public Representative for our area and Builder of Community Pride.
