The recent beautiful weather is reason alone for international visitors from destinations far and wide to flock to the Greater Seattle region. Indeed, tourism was up in 2012, with international tourists contributing $1.9 billion according to the Washington State Tourism Alliance. Of course, credit can’t be given to weather alone, but with summer right around the corner, now is an excellent opportunity to come together and brainstorm even m0re ways of getting the word out about all the things the region has to offer.
The City of Seattle’s ‘City Business Casual’ this week on May 9th is a great opportunity to do just that. Representatives from the tourism and hospitality sector, including business, government and industry associations, will be gathering at 5pm at the Washington State Convention Center for an evening of networking and idea sharing.
