Our Mission

The Morgan Hill Tourism Business Improvement District (MHTBID), or Visit Morgan Hill, promotes Morgan Hill as a tourism destination which has numerous amenities for visitors to enjoy.


Lodging businesses in Morgan Hill contribute 1.5% of their gross short-term revenue to fund MHTBID which works to attract visitors and increase nightly room occupancy. MHTBID is managed by Visit Morgan Hill, a non-profit organization separate from the City of Morgan Hill and led by a board of directors. The Visit Morgan Hill Board of Directors includes lodging representatives, City of Morgan Hill representation and community representatives that represent areas associated with wineries, tourism, and sports recreation tourism.
