About Traverse City Tourism

Organized in 1981 as the Traverse City Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, Traverse City Tourism (TCT) is a nonprofit corporation that serves as the area’s official destination marketing organization. Our focused mission is to stimulate economic growth through the attraction of convention business and leisure tourism development.

Our experienced and knowledgeable team members are motivated by pride in their community and a desire to advance its economic well-being without sacrificing the values that make it such a special place.
