Celebrate your role in the industry
May 5 through 13 is National Travel and Tourism Week. To celebrate, each day this week the Tacoma Regional CVB will introduce you to new tourism ambassadors from around  Pierce County. These ambassadors represent the diverse market segments and demographics that make up Pierce County's tourism industry and will be a part of the Why Tourism Matters campaign.
Who should participate: restaurants, retailers, hotels, meeting + event venues, attractions, tourism services and more. This celebration is for every TRCVB member!

Tourism supports 10,060 jobs and generates $68.8 million dollars in tax receipts in Pierce County. You are a part of this important economic driver.

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!
