Today the departments of the Yakima Valley Visitors and Convention Bureau hosted an appreciation luncheon for more than 60 customers and planners on the Yakima Convention Center Outdoor Plaza in downtown Yakima. The purpose of the lunch was to
- Show appreciation to these invaluable clients for their business,
- Encourage them to continue to keep their business in Yakima Valley
- To bring new events and meetings to town and
- Showcase the Outdoor Plaza as a venue for their events
The event was a combined effort of the VCB, Convention Center and Yakima Valley Sports Commission. The groups present at the luncheon represent more than $5.0 million in visitor economic activity annually for the Valley.
