The visitor center at the Capitol Market will remain open. The new office space would allow for better first impressions with business clients, Bailey said.
Bailey added once the Civic Center renovations are complete and if there is adequate office space available, the CVB would be, "very anxious" to move its office back to the Civic Center.
Civic Center president, John Robertson, could not be reached for comment Wednesday afternoon.
Additionally, board members were briefed on Charleston hosting Travel South's domestic showcase, February 23 to 26.
Bailey said she is "over the moon" about hosting the event that promotes tourism opportunities in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.
This is the first time West Virginia has hosted the event. The event will feature a destination showcase in the Civic Center's Little Theatre and a winter carnival on Capitol Street.
"They (tourism agencies) are always looking to offer their clients new trips," Bailey said.
She hopes West Virginia's tourism industry receives a boost from the event.
The event is anticipated to bring in 600 to 800 travel and tourism professionals.
