Yakima Valley VCB Attends Event

Today, representatives from the Pacific Northwest joined the celebration in Vancouver B.C. to court media and tour operators covering the 2010 Winter Olympics. Staged by Pacific Northwest Economic Region (PNWER), the function was at the BC Showcase right next to the famous skating rink of Robson Square in downtown. During the luncheon reception about 35 media and tour operators met with state, provincial and regional representatives to learn of tourism opportunities in the Northwest.  There was much interest in Washington’s wine country and the farm fresh products of the Yakima Valley.

PNWER is a public-private partnership chartered by the states of Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington; the western Canadian provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Yukon; and Northwest Territories. PNWER is  dedicated to encouraging global economic competitiveness and preserving our world-class natural environment.
