Prince William County to establish its own tourism office

Published on : Thursday, August 3, 2017

Prince William CountyPrince William County will establish its own tourism office to attract visitors to the area. Since 1999, the city and county have teamed up to operate the Prince William and Manassas Convention and Visitors Bureau, a non-profit commonly known as “Discover Prince William and Manassas” that’s partially funded by both localities.

 
“We’re limited in what we can accomplish right now,” said Rojan Robotham, vice chairman of the bureau’s current board of directors. “We need dedicated and full-time support, and that’s what this does.”

 
The group’s board voted 7-4 last month for the change, after a county audit found problems with the bureau’s management structure and accounting practices.

 
Supervisors wanted to embrace the change based on the audit’s results, as were most of the tourism industry representatives in attendance.

 
County Executive Christopher Martino said that the new office will still collaborate with Manassas staff on select projects that have “mutual benefits,” and the county and city will continue funding the current bureau through the end of September.
