Membership Benefits

As the marketing voice of the City of Alexandria, Visit Alexandria is responsible for increasing tourism and convention revenues. In an increasingly competitive market, Alexandria must aggressively promote itself to grow. As a member of Visit Alexandria, you join with hundreds of other members to form a strong, unified presentation of Alexandria that is extraordinary. Our collective marketing presence is more meaningful and more visible than what any of us can do individually.
