The Culpeper Department of Tourism is responsible for the marketing and promotion of Culpeper as a tourist destination through advertising, internet marketing, developing tourism related brochures and publications, and social networking. The Department also serves as the point of contact for media projects related to Culpeper as a destination as well as being the local liaison for the Virginia Film Office.
The Tourism Department’s purpose is to increase the revenue generated in Culpeper by the tourism industry, encouraging more visitors to come to Culpeper, to stay longer, and to spend more money. The Department also works with other organizations to help coordinate efforts in the Culpeper community to further develop and promote tourism as a major industry.
Tourism is one of Virginia’s most powerful industries and provides instant revenue for the state, generating billions of dollars in tax revenue and supporting hundreds of thousands of jobs for Virginians. According to figures provided by the Virginia Tourism Corporation, every $1 invested in tourism marketing generates $5 in tax revenue for the Commonwealth: a 5:1 return on investment!
