The Tale of Two Cities + Travel - San Francisco and Seattle

Business travel, Leisure Travel and Conventions help drive the economies of some of the best cities around the world.   Clearly, much has changed in the past year that affects how we travel.  This has had an impact on and created opportunities for two first class, west-coast cities; San Francisco and Seattle.  Tough and important issues are being addressed and a future is being envisioned relative to:

  • Travel and Business Recovery
  • Supply/Demand changes
  • FiDi, Convention Center, Fisherman’s Wharf, Pikes Market
  • Business Travel, Convention Travel, Leisure Travel
  • Taxes, Tourism Assessments and the Economic Impact of Travel
  • Civic needs and opportunities
