Policy for Calendar of Events
Purpose of Calendar of Events Listing:
To provide a system for visitors and potential visitors to become aware
of tourism events, festivals and activities for the region. These
event listings are designed to assist the traveler in their planning
efforts to visit the region. In order to best meet our mutual needs,
these events must be of a nature to bring people into our communities
from outside of our region. A typical guideline would be, “would
a significant number of people travel more than 50 miles to attend
Events also will be submitted to the State of Illinois database for
event listings on www.enjoyillinois.com
The official form must be completed and submitted to the Alton Regional
Convention & Visitors Bureau, 90 days prior to the event. The
event must be open to the public. The event must be held within the
Alton Regional CVB service area (northern Madison, Jersey and Calhoun
counties in Illinois).
It is the responsibility of the event organizer to ensure accuracy
of the information submitted.
Alton Regional Convention & Visitors Bureau must be notified within
48 hours of a decision to cancel an event. Failure to do so may impede
future listings or promotion by Alton Regional Convention & Visitors
Alton Regional Convention & Visitors Bureau retains the right
to refuse any listing.
Events and Fund-Raisers without a relevant tourism connection are not
eligible for listing on our Tourism Destination website at www.visitalton.com.
The visitor’s center can be made aware of any ineligible event
and a flier can be posted at the visitor’s center in Alton.
However, we strive to keep event listings tailored to the traveling
public and day-trip guests.
