How we are Funded

We can not market the destination without the support of our members

Typically, Destination Marketing Organizations (DMOs) around the world are funded by local optional bed taxes and meal tax revenues. Maine does not have a lodging tax - therefore Visit Portland is funded by membership dues. Dues are based on the type of business ie: Accommodations, Hotels with Meeting Space, Function Facilities, Restaurants, Attractions, and Transportation.

Does Visit Portland charge for services?

Visit Portland's services are FREE to clients!
The visitor, the business traveler, bride, groom, tour operator, or the meeting planner are not charged for services rendered.

How does Visit Portland utilize my membership dues?

Membership dues allow Visit Portland to formulate and facilitate a professional marketing plan which reaches multiple target markets promoting Maine with a focus on the Greater Portland region. Members of Visit Portland receive benefits including publications listings, website listings, brochure distribution, groups leads, networking, and much more!  For more information about these member benefits contact us or review them here.
