What is the VBTTF?
The Virginia Beach Travel and Tourism Foundation (VBTTF) was formed in 2011 and is presently in the process of applying for Recognition of Exemption under Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
The VBTTF's mission is to both recognize and promote the invaluable contributions that the city’s hotels, motels, timeshares, restaurants, retail stores, attractions, entertainment venues, and other enterprises make to support our community's economic vitality and quality of life.
The Foundation also provides scholarships for Virginia Beach students enrolled in culinary arts, hospitality and tourism management or another related discipline at an accredited public, private or for-profit college or university in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
The VBTTF additionally assists in building community partnerships in Virginia Beach to support favorable travel and tourism related policies and programs to help further strengthen and unify our City's hospitality industry.
Finally, the Foundation supports educational efforts and research reports on the Coastal Virginia Region's travel and tourism sectors.
