Welcome to the Fresno-Clovis Tourism Business Improvement District web page!  We hope the information you find here will be helpful.

Developed by the Fresno Convention and Visitors Bureau (FCVB), the Fresno - Clovis Tourism Business Improvement District (FCTBID) is a benefit assessment district proposed to help fund marketing and sales promotion efforts for Fresno and Clovis lodging businesses.

Location of the TBID Area
The FCTBID includes all lodging businesses (e.g., hotels, motels and inns) with more than twenty rooms located within the boundaries of the cities of Fresno and Clovis.

Services Provided 
Marketing and sales promotions to increase tourism and to market Fresno and Clovis as tourist, meeting and event destinations.

Assessment 
Annual assessment rates are 1% of gross short term (stays less than 31 consecutive days) room rental revenue on lodging businesses.  Based on the benefit received, assessments will not be collected on stays of more than thirty (30) consecutive days, not on railroad crews, airline crews or tax-exempt government employees on government business. 

Duration
The FCTBID has a five year life.  The FCTBID assessment was implemented beginning January 1, 2011.  Once per year beginning on the anniversary of the formation of the district there is a 30-day period in which owners paying more than 50% of the assessment may protest and terminate the district.
