It all starts with a visit. A visit by someone traveling to the area for leisure, business, or a sporting event. Odds are, regardless of the reason for the visit, Visit Rapid City more than likely had a hand in enticing and convincing them to visit. Visit Rapid City is a non-profit destination marketing organization that markets Rapid City and the Black Hills area as a convention, sporting event, and leisure destination to promote economic growth that will enhance the area for visitors and residents alike.
As a destination marketing organization (DMO), Visit Rapid City delivers real dividends to the local community, government, businesses, and residents, bolstering the economy. Visitor taxes mean residents pay fewer taxes. DMOs are investment accounts for destinations that create jobs.
What does that mean? Visit Rapid City is not only working year-round to attract visitors to Rapid City, entice them to spend money in Rapid City, and ensure they have a positive experience but also working closely with community leaders, business owners, and residents on destination development projects, workforce development, community relations, and advocacy. Visit Rapid City is a community asset responsible for programs promoting a community as an attractive travel destination and enhancing its public image as a dynamic place to live and work.
