Oxnard, CA -- The Oxnard Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) was recently recognized by the Oxnard Chamber of Commerce at their 68th Annual Community & Business Awards luncheon held on Friday, April 27 at Levity Live at The Collection at RiverPark.  The Oxnard CVB won the “Oxnard Trophy” award for its contribution to the local economy.

“Given that the hotel occupancy rates and average daily rates are the highest in Ventura County, our Board of Directors wanted to acknowledge the creative, yet challenging, work the Oxnard CVB does to promote Oxnard,” stated Nancy Lindholm, President & CEO of the Oxnard Chamber of Commerce.  “The Oxnard Chamber leadership sincerely appreciates all the work the Oxnard Convention & Visitors Bureau produces with their strong marketing efforts which can be measured by the success of our hotels, restaurants and attractions,” she continued. “The tourism industry is an integral part of our local economy,” she added.

According to the Oxnard CVB, Oxnard had the highest occupancy in Ventura County.  The Bureau reports that year-to-date, occupancy is up 8.2% over last year, the highest increase of all of Ventura, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, and San Luis Obispo Counties.  Oxnard’s Average Daily Rate is 6.2 % up over last year and the Rev Par is 14.9% up over last year, resulting in the highest increase of all of Ventura, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles and San Luis Obispo Counties.

“Our momentum is strong and the economic impact from tourism is on an upswing, continuing to grow through the increased transient occupancy tax and awareness of our destination through relevant and consistent marketing messaging,” stated Julie Mino, President & CEO of the Oxnard Convention & Visitors Bureau.  “We were so honored to be recognized by the Oxnard Chamber of Commerce and look forward to continuing our efforts to increase Oxnard’s presence and visibility among competing destinations,” she added.
