Working with the Kitsap Peninsula Visitors & Convention Bureau
May 9, 2012 — Pam Heinrich.
Recently, I had the opportunity of working with the Kitsap Peninsula Visitors Convention Bureau (KPVCB). I was invited to attend in Port Townsend the Travel Writer's Conference where writers for travel magazines gather for workshops and networking on ideas for travel sites. I represented the South Kitsap area and met some very interesting people. I must say our table was the busiest. Along with myself, there were representatives from Bremerton, Silverdale, Poulsbo, etc. We all had a good time telling these writers about all the very interesting things we have to offer as travel sites, like the historic walk in Port Orchard, the bicycle path along the water, the small winery in Olalla or all the antique stores Bay Street as well as Elandon Gardens. Then of course there's the Sidney Museum and Art Gallery and the Log Cabin. One woman wanted to know about a place her daughter could take her for lunch and I mentioned the Springhouse tearoom knit because she also wanted to visit Debbie Macomber's knit shop. Maybe it was our winning way, smiles all around or our enthusiasm, but whatever it was, we had a good time and those writers took a lot of our handouts. Just wanted to say the KPVCB is doing a good job.
