WTA and WLA issue RFP for Publishing Services

The Washington Lodging Association and the Washington Tourism Alliance are seeking proposals from firms interested in providing  advertising sales, production and distribution services for the 2016 through 2018 editions of the Washington State Visitors’ Guide.

The Washington State Visitors’ Guide has been published annually since 2000. Fulfilling the needs of travelers already in Washington; travelers still in the planning stages who are seeking ideas and information about where to go, stay, eat, play, etc. in Washington; and prospective travelers who have not yet made the decision to visit, the Visitors’ Guide inspires readers to explore Washington destinations, visit more often, extend their stays and, as a result, spend more during their visits.
