Visit Albuquerque Tourism Grant Program

Purpose

The mission of Visit Albuquerque is to stimulate economic growth by marketing Albuquerque as a destination for leisure travel, meetings and sports events.

In 2022 Albuquerque’s City Council voted unanimously to establish an Albuquerque Tourism Marketing District (ATMD). The ATMD is a coalition of approximately 150 local lodging properties that have organized efforts in order to increase demand for overnight visitation to our city. The ATMD provides additional funds to expand marketing of Albuquerque, enhance visitor services and develop destination assets. This year, 5% of ATMD revenue supports annual tourism grants. 

The overarching goal of the Visit Albuquerque Tourism Grant program is to spark innovative ideas that contribute to Albuquerque’s vibrancy and build new, creative visitor and resident experiences that grow a more diverse and thriving tourism economy.
