Seattle Southside, the leading tourism and marketing organization in South King County, introduces their newest team member, Business Development Manager Meagan McGuire. She will help sales efforts and assist groups for planning meetings and events in Seattle Southside.

McGuire served the hospitality industry previously as the group sales and private events account executive for the Museum of Flight since 2006. In this position she developed and executed outside sales strategies to increase admission sales, specifically targeted to groups, in fulfillment of periodic sales goals. McGuire also coordinated events held at the museum, including business meetings, weddings, receptions and trade shows.

"We are thrilled to welcome Meagan to our team!" said Katherine Kertzman, executive director of Seattle Southside Visitor Services. "We worked with Meagan in her role at the Museum of Flight and know she will be a great asset in bringing groups, meetings and events to Seattle Southside,"

McGuire graduated from Central Washington University with a degree in Archeology and earned her Master’s degree from Washington State University in Anthropology.

The Seattle Southside Visitor Services program, offered jointly by the cities of Des Moines, SeaTac, and Tukwila, is responsible for competitively marketing the area as an ideal travel destination for tourists who wish to explore Western Washington.

From making her kids’ Kraken Halloween costumes inspired by Seattle’s National Hockey League team to chasing the sun in eastern Washington looking for spots to camp, Kelly Saling’s love for the Pacific Northwest is apparent in all aspects of her life—including her career. Promoted to senior vice president and chief sales officer at Visit Seattle in September 2021, Saling pulls from this personal appreciation to plug people into the region’s array of venues, natural landscapes, and everything in between.

 

Comfortable, familiar, and adorned with the color tones and tapestries of Peru, Portland’s Andina restaurant, housed in a historic onetime abattoir and warehouse in the city’s Pearl District, serves up modern Peruvian cuisine. 

 

Built in the vision of streamline modernism and art deco in 1941, the Vogue Theatre has become a hotspot in the heart of Vancouver’s entertainment district—a region known for its progressive hospitality and historic charm. “It’s a national registered historic site in Canada,” says Matt Friesen, general manager of the theater. While it is primarily a concert venue hosting artists such as Steve Lacy and Steve Earle & The Dukes, the Vogue’s nearly 10,000 square feet of space and mission to offer the utmost friendly customer service makes it a perfect venue for your next event.
