Press release from Bellingham Whatcom County Tourism:
Bellingham Whatcom County Tourism is encouraging participation in a discussion with the Washington Tourism Alliance on 9-11 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 30 at the Best Western PLUS Lakeway Inn.
The Executive Director of the WTA, Suzanne Fletcher, will give an update on activities on the state level and ask for input from members of the Bellingham and Whatcom County tourism industry. This is one of several roundtables the WTA is hosting around the state.
The WTA was created in February 2011 following the announcement of the closure of the Washington State Tourism office by the end of the 2009-2011 biennium. It is a non-profit organization established by industry stakeholders with the sole mission of sustaining Washington State destination tourism marketing. The WTA procures and administers funds for statewide destination tourism marketing activities and creates and implements a strategic statewide destination marketing plan.
There is no charge to attend, but please RSVP with your name and number of attendees either by email to email@example.com or by phone to 360-671-3990.
