About The CVB

The Marshalltown Convention & Visitors Bureau (MCVB) has been in operation since 1993. They are operational through the funding received from a percentage of the Motel | Hotel tax. Their office is located in the Fisher Community Center which was generously donated toour-building the community by William (Bill) Fisher and is the location of Christian Petersen’s final sculpture, “Dedication to the Future”.

The MCVB assists groups planning meetings, conventions, tournaments and events hosted in Marshalltown | Marshall County and they assist group tour planners to showcase Marshalltown as a destination for daily tours. See the Planners web page for more information.

The MCVB is the Hub for finding and posting events that are going on in Marshalltown | Marshall County. Events are added daily by community members, organizations and businesses offering events open to the public. Visitors and the community can find events on the Events web page.

Visitors can stop in the MCVB office and they will provide them with a Marshalltown Visitors Guide and other information about their beloved town. The guide replicates most of what they offer on their website but offers a personal touch.
