Seattle’s Convention and Visitors Bureau (SCVB) welcomed Troy Anderson as National Account Director as part of the sales team at the start of this year. Anderson focuses his promotion and selling of Seattle and the region as a meeting destination to corporate planners.

Anderson offers over nine years of experience in the hospitality industry. He has served as the National Sales Manager of Treasure Island Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, NV. In addition, he was the Director of Sales and Marketing for Siena, Arroyo Golf Clubs & Red Rock Country Club and the Convention Sales Coordinator for MGM Resorts at The Mirage Hotel. 

"We are thrilled to welcome Troy Anderson to our team," said Marco Bloemendaal, SCVB Senior Vice President, Convention Sales and Services. "Troy is a highly trained and seasoned professional in marketing, sales and management and dedicated to excellence and customer service."

A native to Washington state, Anderson has a passion for Seattle and the Pacific Northwest. He is a graduate of the University of Washington with a BS in Business Administration with an International Marketing Emphasis and a minor in Speech Communication.

The average event-goer spends long days sitting in meetings or professional development sessions, followed by an hour or two of standing and sipping cocktails. But holding your next big event at a spa resort opens a realm of possibilities for wellness breaks. Moving the action from the boardroom to the steam room can improve morale by combining business with pleasure—while also boosting attendees’ health. 

 

 Seattle is young and ever evolving, a dynamic city where newness is an integral part of the culture. And it has a long, proud history of hospitality.

In the early 1850s, Chief Seattle welcomed strangers to the banks of Puget Sound. Because of his kindness, they named their new settlement on Elliott Bay after him. “Seattle is a new city with an ancient culture,” notes Ken Workman, Chief Seattle’s great, great, great, great grandson. “It’s less than two grandmas old, as we like to say.” 

 

Many see Portland as a progressive city. No event venues are likely more in line with that world view than the two run by Ecotrust Events. Ecotrust, the events branch’s overarching nonprofit, leads a staggering number of social equity, economic opportunity, and environmental programs, from supporting Native American land rights to building intergenerational wealth for Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) individuals. What does this have to do with hosting a corporate meeting? Everything.
