The hotel representative will then contact you directly with specific information on availability, pricing and services available. CONVENTION SITE TOURS We will be pleased to help you make arrangements for your convention chairman or meeting planner to visit the properties you are interested in for your conference site. We can help you in planning companion programs, suggest off-site tours or recreational activities outside the hotel, suggest entertainment options, and direct you to a variety of sources for speakers, decorators, off-site receptions or banquets, special event planners, and more. PROMOTIONAL AIDS AND ASSISTANCE We are happy to provide you with a variety of brochures on Snohomish County attractions and recreational activities, maps, and trade show bags for use at your convention.

PUBLICITY We will provide you with a media list for local publicity opportunities. We encourage you to provide them with a promotional flyer or media kit at least one month in advance of your event.

A professional event planner can help you with set up, take down, supply registration assistance, act as a liaison and service exhibitors, provide lighting, and coordinate freight from your exhibitors allowing you to focus on the conference program. ORIENTATION SERVICE For the opening of your meeting, we can provide a speaker to give a general orientation the Snohomish County area, noting our special activities and attractions. You may wish to include a complimentary "Snohomish County Visitors Guide" in each delegate's convention packet. A sample of more detailed brochures may also be made available at a resource table in your headquarters hotel.

Additional Information

Snohomish (sno-HOH'-mish) County is located in northwest Washington State, nestled between the sparkling blue waters of Puget Sound and the rugged, snow-capped peaks of the Cascade Mountains. Snohomish County begins 12 miles north of Seattle, a little under 100 miles south of Vancouver, and a short ferry ride away from the San Juan Islands or Olympic Peninsula, Snohomish County is ideally situated for exploring the entire Pacific Northwest. We have some of the most spectacularly beautiful scenery in the United States, forest and mountain wildlife sanctuaries, unlimited opportunities for outdoor fun and artistic pursuits, and the best coffee west of Italy. Our economy is thriving thanks in large part to being the home of industry giant Boeing's 747, 767, 777 and 787 Dreamliner assembly plant.
