Washington D.C. is the home of thousands of associations. In October, the Travel Tacoma + Pierce County sales team, met with 22 meeting planners in D.C., who combined plan more than 100 meetings and conferences a year.

Josephine Gilmore, Meeting Planner at IMN Solutions Management Consulting was one such professional planner who attended the Travel Tacoma event, held at Nike Georgetown.

"[My clients] like Tacoma's big-city accessibility, but at a more affordable cost than Seattle," Gilmore shared. "It's a unique destination, with a unique geography." Gilmore went on to say that she's finding more and more interest in West Coast destination's as more people are willing to travel to the West Coast than other regions.

The D.C. Client event is part of Travel Tacoma's 2015 strategic plan to bring more association meetings and conferences to Pierce County.

What to do this weekend: 1/20 - 1/22

Happy Friday, Pierce County!
This time of year one of my favorite things to do is try something new and creative. The cloudy skies make being inside so appealing, but I don't want to just sit around indoors all weekend! Luckily, scattered throughout Pierce County there are plenty of creative enterprises who can help artistically challenged individuals like myself create something to display in my home, drink my morning coffee out of, or even give as a gift to a friend with an upcoming birthday!
