Salish Sea Visitor Centers
Part of our long range plan is to develop physical point-of-connection kiosks and retail spaces in high-traffic urban areas--places where people can learn about the Salish Sea from real people. As distribution centers for literature and local merchandise, these retail spaces will benefit membership in many ways.
Our goal is to develop retail locations in Seattle, Bellevue, Tacoma and Olympia.
Pilot Program: In the meantime, we are working on developing our first public information kiosk program within the city of Seattle. In conjunction with FarmBoat, Salish Sea Tourism plans to distribute sponsoring member collateral to public visitors in a high traffic location later this year on a trial basis. We will get a chance to meet with people face to face and encourage a grass-root connection between our members and the public.
Our pilot program will be built on an old-world Parisian-style market cart to convey an underlying message of substance and longevity. We want people to know that the Salish Sea has been here all along--just waiting for their discovery.
