Tri-Cities Visitor and Convention Bureau Gets Extra Revenue
KENNEWICK, Wash.-- In 2007 the Tri-Cities Visitor and Convention Bureau in Kennewick, got $100,000 extra in revenue.
This money automatically goes into a reserve budget. But Tuesday night the bureau asked the Kennewick City Council to let them use this money for future projects.
They say this is all an effort to keep bringing attention to all the attractions the Tri-Cities has to offer.
"We have an area that's rich in cultural history. You can come tour the Sacagawea State Park, and if you're a wine enthusiast you can visit the wineries, people have more than one interest," said Kim Shugart, Vice President of Sales at the Tri-Cities Visitor and Convention Bureau.
Some projects the bureau is working on include a traffic information radio signal and TV ads targeting the west side of the state. They're also looking at putting kiosks with information in strategic locations in town.
