Yakima Valley tourism industry hosts meeting planners

With the support of local hotels and hospitality industry, the Yakima Valley Visitors and Convention Bureau and the Yakima Convention Center marched into the Olympia area last week to promote the destination to meeting planners and association executives at the Lacey Community Center.

Attended by 49 meeting planners and association executives, the luncheon not only showcased the many facilities and their amenities, but also offered free Yakima Valley fruit and produce plus a sumptuous meal prepared by M & M Catering.

A highlight of the festivities was the drawing for an iPad, won by Nora Eylenfeldt from the Washington Fire Commissioners Association.  In addition, a new convention promotional video was unveiled.
