Alex Stowell is the Venice Chamber Tourism Chair. The Venice Tourism Committee provides information and resources to visitors enabling them to have the ultimate Venice experience
This committee brings awareness to the people, events, activities, and attractions of Venice that inspires its reputation as a cultural enclave. Through the use of outreach, websites, social media, apps, and hard copy media, visitors navigate the myriad of options Venice has to offer. Committee members work hand-in-hand with the local event planners and businesses to bring awareness to the concerts, art shows, and general festivities that happen in Venice. This group also collaborates with community leaders with the objective of making the Venice experience better for both locals and visitors alike.
The Venice Tourism Committee meets monthly and is responsible for presenting Certificates of Recognition to event planners that have had a significant impact on Venice culture and art. In 2017, the Win a Trip to Venice initiative was launched to inspire tourism and promote Venice at home and abroad.
