Destination Marlborough is a regional tourism organisation (RTO) tasked with promoting Marlborough as a visitor destination to attract more guests to visit Marlborough.
We are a not-for-profit Trust, funded through a combination of Marlborough District Council rates including a targeted tourism rate, private sector investment, and i-SITE revenue.
Our role is to increase visitor numbers, visitor spend, and time in the region, by creating and coordinating effective marketing and promotional activity.
