Jacksonville, FL - Airstream Ventures is on the move again with its sports tourism division expanding into the West Coast. This new strategy and direction for the company now focuses in the great State of Washington.
Airstream Ventures has partnered with Visit Vancouver WA to now assist in its sports tourism marketing efforts and attract events to the destination's premier facilities. The partnership will focus on defining Vancouver as a destination that brings a significant economic impact and year-round tourism.
Visit Vancouver WA is the official destination marketing organization (DMO) for Vancouver and the surrounding Clark County, Washington. Airstream Ventures will work with them to market the region as a venue for sports events. The organization’s primary mission is to increase visitor spending in the area to support and encourage economic growth and vitality to Vancouver, Washington’s valued local community.
The city’s roots originated on the Columbia River’s north shore, where the Pacific Northwest’s first indigenous inhabitants started a diverse and thriving community. Now that growth presents itself in its innovative waterfront, friendly and walkable downtown, and easy access to Mount St. Helens, the Columbia River Gorge, and the Pacific Coast.
“We have so much to offer in terms of location, climate, and a range of facilities,” said Tanya Minor, Director of Sales at Visit Vancouver WA, “We can’t wait to work with Airstream Ventures on bringing traditional and non-traditional sporting events to our area. We also look forward to expanding those relationships across the nation, and finding areas where we can improve our destination for sports tourism and further economic vitality.”
Sports tourism is a large economic driver for communities and Airstream Ventures is excited to take its success with other communities and expand efforts into Vancouver, Washington.
“Vancouver is such a special place with passionate people,” said Alan Verlander, CEO of Airstream Ventures. “Cliff and Tanya have shown a real desire to grow sports tourism in their community. We look forward to creating an entire lineup of events for the Pacific Northwest and Vancouver community.”
Vancouver becomes the eighth community partner market for Airstream Ventures. Airstream Ventures currently has partners in Florida, Nebraska, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia and now, Washington. In five years, Airstream Ventures has produced over 100 events in the communities with over 20 being televised nationally and regionally.
