The REACH Museum, Port of Walla Walla & Visit Walla Walla Awarded grant by The Port of Seattle to support tourism

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE,WA  – The Port of Seattle Tuesday announced the recipients of 13 grants to support tourism across Washington. The grants will fund nearly $100,000 in projects, from websites and advertising to booths at tourism fairs. 

The grants must be matched by the organization and used for publicizing and attracting visitors to their destinations.

Visit Walla Walla and the Port of Walla Walla received $6,000 to conduct digital advertising campaigns in Denver, Sacramento, or Phoenix that will generate interest and awareness and increase travelers to the Pacific Northwest. All air travelers flying to Walla Walla will use Sea-Tac airport as the connecting gateway to Walla Walla.

The REACH Museum received $10,000 and their plans include advertising expansion in key domestic markets outside of the state of Washington targeted to attract boomer and millennial visitors to fly to Washington including Seattle and then on to the Tri-Cities. The marketing message is to experience the area’s agritourism, outstanding wineries, and the REACH museum that tells the story of the area’s role in ending WWII.
