Travel Tacoma + Pierce County realigns to focus on core mission: Deliver tourism to Pierce County

Wednesday, May 13, 2015 3:42 PM by Travel Tacoma

Travel Tacoma + Pierce County has restructured to focus on its core purpose: Building destination awareness and driving economic impact through regional conventions, meetings and events.

Function follows form.  So the team has reorganized into these two core departments: Marketing + Sales.

Vice President of Marketing, Jaime Vogt, will lead the team responsible for marketing, communications and visitor information.  She will be responsible for building destination awareness, and providing a great visitor experience. As part of the realignment, the Visitor Information Center is now a component of the Marketing Department. Similarly, Tour + Travel, as it pertains to leisure travel will be moved into Marketing. While marketing will continue to promote Tour + Travel itineraries on, and work with interested operators, Travel Tacoma will no longer be proactively pursuing Tour + Travel development.

Vice President of Sales + Servicing, Chelene Potvin-Bird, will lead the consolidated regional + convention center sales team and conference services.  Potvin-Bird will be responsible for driving event bookings at regional venues and the Greater Tacoma Convention and Trade Center; and preparing our customers, and the community for successful events.

Administrative and Business Development teams remain the same.

If you have specific questions about the restructuring, please don't hesitate to contact President + CEO of Travel Tacoma + Pierce County, Bennish Brown.

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

Thursday, January 19, 2017 6:00 PM by Calista Klein

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!
