In 1928, the San Diego Convention Bureau was organized by the Convention Department of the San Diego Chamber of Commerce. Its purpose was to function as an independent organization to put San Diego in a position to compete for convention business with other communities. The Bureau changed its name to the Convention and Visitors Bureau in 1965. San Diego was the first city to sustain a visitor promotion unit, and it is considered by most bureau managers across the nation to be the best organized in the nation. The collection includes reports, studies, financial records, research files, purchase orders, correspondence, public relations materials, media campaigns, conferences, speeches, brochures, promotional publications, and photographs.
