Frequently Asked Questions

Destination marketing organizations are formed to market certain regions as desirable tourism destinations.

Yes, Visit Tri-Valley is a 501(c)(6) nonprofit organization.

Visit Tri-Valley was first established as the Pleasanton Convention and Visitor Bureau (CVB) in 1993. Visit Tri-Valley was officially formed in 2005 representing all five Tri-Valley communities, and was renewed in 2015 to represent Danville, Dublin, Livermore & Pleasanton, CA. 

AC Hotel Guidelines

Visit Tri-Valley currently represents Danville, Dublin, Livermore & Pleasanton, CA.

Outside of generating millions of dollars for the state of California and our local communities, tourism also contributes to our economy by creating jobs, generating revenue for our hospitality industry, and partially funding local services like public schools, city staffing/security, road fixtures, and fire departments.

In addition to all the behind-the-scenes work you don’t see (but the visitor does), we create the Visit Tri-Valley Inspiration Guide, Social Media Campaigns, Digital Marketing Campaigns, TV Commercials, Airport Billboards, Industry & Travel Magazine & Site Ads, and those adorable trail passports you’ve seen around town.

The visitor actually pays for Visit Tri-Valley through a nominal bed tax charged per room, per night.

Programs, Promotions, Marketing & Sports Initiatives

Part of our job is to create initiatives, promotions and programs as well as book sporting events that make living, playing and staying in the Tri-Valley a fun and unique experience. See our current programs below.

Tracy Farhad
PRESIDENT & CEO

Who would have known an ex-performer and interior designer would find her perfect mix of bringing people together in tourism promotion? As a self-proclaimed PR junkie and official Tri-Valley cheerleader, I can’t help but show off my new hometowns for the world to discover. Perhaps that’s because I believe in the power of travel as ambassadors for good, mixed with a love for the arts, heritage buff, foodie (ah the discoveries here!) and outdoor enthusiast. Find me singing “the hills are alive…” up one of the beautiful open spaces with my family or comparing local red and whites (and bubbly too).

 

Robin Fahr
DIRECTOR OF MARKETING & COMMUNICATIONS

Happy Talker. Prefers a phone convo with partners rather than email or better yet, a face-to-face over a glass of Chardonnay. Favorite exercise: Dancing. Top 2 favorite songs: Sunday Morning by Maroon 5 and Time & Tide by Basia. Spare time: Singing in Chorus Eclectic and Bocce League in Danville. Best meal I ever had: Chef Francis Hogan of Sabio in Pleasanton going off menu and pairing it all with Livermore Valley wines. Still not over that.

 

Todd Dibbs, CSEE
DIRECTOR OF SPORTS DEVELOPMENT

Splitting time between coasts throughout my life (20 years in New York and college in Washington DC), I pride myself in having traits of both East and West Coast residents.  Of course, I love all sports and bringing an event from incubation to reality has been the most satisfying thing I have done in my professional life.  Little known fact about me, I love plays, musicals and museums and often seek them out while on vacation or if I have free time on business travels.

 

Amber Birdwell
DIGITAL MARKETING MANAGER

As a self-proclaimed social media guru, I’m not much of a meme-maker, but I am a number-crunching creative who loves everything digital. Having been raised in this area, I consider myself an unofficial tour guide to the Tri-Valley. When I’m not at work, you can find me on the tee box at Poppy Ridge Golf Course, rocking out to a summer concert at the Alameda County Fairgrounds, or devouring sashimi at Akira Sushi.

 

Justin Bower
MARKETING AND EVENTS COORDINATOR

Born and raised in The Tri-Valley and a grad from Amador Valley High. You may catch me on an early morning hike on The Pleasanton Ridge or Sycamore Grove before heading to lunch at Hop Devine and an ice cream at Meadowlark. Once the sun goes down, I may be at an A’s or Sharks game followed by a postgame drink at The Sunshine Saloon.

 

Susan Bolt
OFFICE MANAGER

As bubbly as a Wente sparkling wine, I’ve been roaming the Tri-Valley for most of my life. When I’m not obsessing about my pets, I love being in the kitchen cooking for family and friends. My specialty is homemade onion jam. It sounds weird but it goes on just about everything.  Yum…..
