The Cincinnati region celebrated multiculturalism and diversity last week during Vibe Week, hosted by the Cincinnati USA Convention & Visitors Bureau’s multicultural platform, Vibe Cincinnati.
On Wednesday, July 26, the CVB hosted the 2017 Multicultural Travel & Tourism Forum, which brought several national hospitality leaders to Cincinnati to discuss diversity in the industry. For the remainder of the week, a stacked lineup of local art, free concerts, food vendors and retail from area entrepreneurs drew hundreds to the city’s center at Fountain Square to celebrate the region’s diverse culture. The opening night of the Cincinnati Music Festival, Throwback Thursday, was also a Vibe-sponsored event.
“Cincinnati was thriving last week as we came together to experience the power of art and culture throughout our community," said Dan Lincoln, president and CEO of the Cincinnati USA CVB. "We are a region that values the qualities that make us different, and that together, make us the Queen City. Vibe Cincinnati allowed visitors and Cincinnati residents alike to amplify those qualities by celebrating diversity."
