What I do: “I manage convention trade public relations, work with thousands of partners in Washington to influence travel to Seattle, and help planners continue to be interested in meeting here. Additionally, I work with the convention sales and services team to share unique ways Seattle hosts meetings.”

Brag-worthy: Visit Seattle took Taste Washington from a one-day tasting event to a four-day wine and food festival. Robinson manages media relations for TW as the nation’s largest single-region wine and food event.

Next-level ideas: Robinson and the CVB are implementing cool new strategies to market Seattle as a meetings destination, such as the recently launched Visit Seattle TV, for which various individuals are selected to explore the city and share what they love about it on camera.
