Illinois VolunTourism (IVT) is a volunteer opportunity for tourism organizations and their partners across our state. IVT is a chance to come together by donating our time and giving back to the areas and historic attractions that make Illinois the great tourism destination that it is.

The IVT event will be held a day prior to the conference, at 1:00pm on Sunday, March 20, 2016.

During this inaugural IVT event, the Illinois Office of Tourism (IOT), working in conjunction with the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency (IHPA), invites all conference attendees to give back to the Springfield tourism community. Our volunteers will spend half a day cleaning flower beds, trimming bushes, and preparing Illinois’ War Memorials for the coming tourism season when tens of thousands of youth and guests will visit the area to pay respect to Illinoisans who stepped forward to give the ultimate sacrifice.

Don’t miss out on an afternoon of giving back to the community, of being able to network with your fellow conference attendees, but most of all to being able to make a difference.

With every $25 registration, attendees will receive a branded volunteer t-shirt, water bottle and the opportunity to network amongst tourism professionals post the volunteer event at an exclusive cocktail reception at the historic Dana Thomas House with rejuvenating drinks and hors d’evours!
