Convention & Visitors Bureau kicks off 9th annual #iHeartHsv campaign

CVB is kicking off Huntsville's "digital lovefest" in honor of its 9th annual #iHeartHsv campaign.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Returning for its ninth year, the Huntsville/Madison County Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) is kicking off Huntsville’s biggest “digital lovefest,” the #iHeartHsv social media campaign

The campaign offers visitors and locals alike the opportunity to share what they love most about Huntsville/Madison County. This year, the CVB is inviting the public to submit digital Valentines for local hospitality workers on how much they are appreciated. 

Everyone is invited to join the CVB in celebrating all things travel and hospitality in the Rocket City by using the hashtag #iHeartHsv on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Dear Hospitality, We Love You

The theme for this year – Dear Hospitality, We Love You – centers around showing appreciation for those working in the Rocket City hospitality industry. Digital Valentine messages expressing words of encouragement from the public will be shared with those working in hospitality across the Huntsville/Madison County area. The Valentines can be sent via online form on the CVB’s website at huntsville.org/iHeartHsv.

 As an incentive to garner as many submissions as possible, the CVB will draw a $500 cash prize winner from all entries submitted through February 1-14. The winner will be announced by February 16.
