Each year, WSDMO’s lobbyist monitors, comments and makes recommendations on a number of bills affecting the tourism industry, thereby taking a proactive approach to ensure that all opportunities are being fully maximized.

WSDMO mobilizes its members, partners and constituents in targeted grassroots communication campaigns to influence legislators at key times throughout the legislative session as well as at other necessary and appropriate times. We also interview legislative candidates to determine their knowledge and position on tourism issues and to educate them on the importance of our industry to the economic health of the state.

Why Tourism Matters Campaign:

Hotels and meeting facilities, attractions, restaurants, cultural institutions, tour companies and transportation providers are among the local businesses greatly impacted by travel to Washington State. The tourism industry here employs 149,900 people, generates total direct visitor spending of $15.8 billion and generates $1 billion in state and local tax revenue. Tourism touches the community in countless other ways.
