Visit Seattle has called on Canuckiwi Consulting to manage its consumer and trade marketing, and travel trade relations in Canada this fall.
“As Canadian travellers return to the U.S., we are honoured to work with Visit Seattle to inspire Canadian travellers, travel advisors and tour operators to choose the Emerald City,” said Corey Marshall, principal, Canuckiwi Consulting. “Canuckiwi specializes in representing U.S. destinations so partnering with the renowned Pacific Northwest city of Seattle is a natural fit.”
“As a border city, Canada is Seattle’s top international market and Canadian travel advisors, tour operators and OTAs are key partners to driving our visitation,” added Caitlyn Shearer, tourism manager, Visit Seattle. “We are excited to continue to welcome Canadians back to Seattle.”
Access to Seattle is now more convenient than ever for Canadians with the launch of Air Canada’s daily, non-stop service from Montreal, as well as the return of non-stop flights operated by multiple airlines from Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, Victoria and Kelowna.
With a mild, West coast climate influenced by its location situated beside the Pacific Ocean, Cascade mountain range and proximity to three U.S. National Parks (Mt Rainier, North Cascades, Olympic), Seattle is a fresh choice for fall and winter getaways this year – especially for Canadian hockey fans looking to cheer on the NHL’s newest team, the Seattle Kraken, at the innovative Climate Pledge Arena.
