Gainesville officials are hoping a name change to the tourism and trade office will boost economic development and help attract more visitors and conventions. City Council approved a request Tuesday directing the state delegation from Hall County to pursue legislation in the General Assembly that would authorize the birth of the Gainesville Convention and Visitors Bureau Authority. “I think one of the good things about having the CVB designation is that it is known internationally,” said Gainesville spokeswoman Catiel Felts.
