Toronto Blue Jays vs. Seattle Mariners – August 2014 CTC Seattle Client Event

Tourism Kelowna’s Jennifer Horsnell joined other Western Canadian destinations in welcoming over 60 Seattle based clients at Safeco Field to watch the Toronto Blue Jays take on the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday, August 13th.  The evening was organized by the Canadian Tourism Commission and their Business Events Canada representative from San Francisco, Robin Thompson.  The event welcomed both independent meeting planners and corporate clients from the Seattle area who hold meetings and events. This was our first sales trip to Seattle, a secondary market for our team and it was an excellent opportunity to network with potential new clients while touching base with some planners with whom we have worked over the years, but had never met in person. Follow up is underway as we reach out to all attendees to make Kelowna top of mind as a destination for their next meeting or retreat.
