5th Annual Washington Tourism Alliance Summit and Day in Olympia 

Join us for a day of tourism advocacy focused on WTA efforts to secure long-term funding for Washington State tourism marketing and promotion. Thanks to your support at previous summits and throughout the legislative session, the WTA is well positioned to move forward with the pursuit of legislatively establishing a long-term funding model for a state-wide sustainable tourism program. We hope you’ll join us in Olympia to support these efforts.
