Update on the Port's COVID-19 response Learn more.

The Port of Seattle actively markets the region as a leading tourism destination and business gateway.  With a major international airport and a growing cruise industry, the Port is interested in making the region a ‘Gateway of Choice’ for international and domestic travelers. 

Tourism Development partners with Visit Seattle to promote our destination to international visitors through public relations and special promotions with travel trade, consumer and social media.  Tourism also develops and maintains relationships throughout the state and region with the shared goal of increasing the economic benefits of tourism.

The Port operates two unique marketing programs to leverage tourism promotion efforts with partners across Washington State: 

  • Tourism Marketing Support Program (annual)
  • Spotlight SEA Airport Advertising Program (bi-annual)
