How are we doing? Pretty good. That was the bottom-line assessment that was shared with the nearly 600 tourism and professionals who attended Visit Seattle’s Annual Outlook Meeting at the Westin Seattle on March 31.

Some highlights from the 2021 study showed:

 

A big part of what imbues a destination with a sense of place and makes it memorable are its small locally owned businesses.  A new partnership between Visit Seattle and Seattle Bank is designed to support these businesses and bring tourism revenue to Seattle’s emerging neighborhoods. The inaugural grant program will invest in 20 local businesses, focusing on establishments owned by women, people of color and LGBTQ+ community members in the easily accessible Central District and Chinatown-International District neighborhoods.

 

Honeycomb Strategies, based in the Colorado mountain town of Crested Butte and with a second location in Portland, Oregon, has been certified as a B Corporation. The women-owned sustainability consulting firm is helping the global event industry create sustainable management systems and reduce its footprint.
