Visit Lufkin is the driving force behind Lufkin’s thriving visitor industry. Successful visitor promotion includes partnerships and a concerted effort by all interested parties. Visit Lufkin's promotional efforts are most effective as a united approach that complements the marketing plans and goals of the City of Lufkin, the Lufkin/Angelina County Chamber, and local government.
Recognized as the official destination marketing and sales organization for Lufkin, Visit Lufkin is responsible for promoting Lufkin and Angelina County as an attractive destination for meetings and conventions, trade shows, and leisure travelers. The Lufkin Convention & Visitors Bureau also provides a leadership role in shaping the future direction of Lufkin’s tourism development.
Visit Lufkin acts as the "concierge" for visitors to Lufkin by providing visitor information and services, and by creating in visitors the desire to extend stays and return often. Funding for Visit Lufkin comes from both the public sector (a percentage of the Accommodations Tax revenues) and private sponsorships. Our offices are located inside the Pitser Garrison Conventer Center and is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is closed on the weekends.
