Help shape what tourism will look like
in Northeast Washington

State of Washington Tourism in partnership Tri County Economic Development District is offering an organized series of workshops and events to bring regional leaders, interest groups, business owners and others together in a collaborative way. The goal is to create a shared vision for success with our regional tourism and outdoor recreation economy. From that vision we’ll examine how this kind of tourism can positively impact our communities, resources and economies, and we’ll develop a plan for how to attract both new and return visitors.
