The Rockford Area Convention & Visitors Bureau is an organization that promotes the Rockford region and proudly works to welcome visitors to our community.

We believe diversity is one of this region’s greatest attributes.

Still, as an organization and as a community we have more work to do to fully embrace the celebration of diversity and efforts focused on equity and inclusion. While we cannot take ownership in the work of all organizations, we absolutely can and should do our part to help our region be welcoming to all.

Many of you are probably like us at the RACVB and have been working from home for a while. I'm so grateful that we have the technology to easily stay connected with our team. Since we've been working from home, we (like many other companies) have utilized Zoom to be able to communicate with our staff.

Although...it gets boring looking at the same background every Zoom meeting. Why have your office (or living room, or kitchen...) wall in the background when you can "travel around Rockford" while you're on Zoom??

Two local businessmen, Vince Chiarelli and Peter Provenzano, share a vision to bring more live entertainment to downtown Rockford and the surrounding area. Chiarelli, a local musician and owner of Vincent Records, and Provenzano, owner of SupplyCore Inc. and chairman of the Rock River Development Partnership, hope to help stimulate the local music scene and economy by bringing exciting and unique concerts to the Rockford area. The two share the feeling that the local community strives for more mid-size and large national touring musical acts.
