Seaside’s Hospitality Industry News: A New Resource for Seaside Tourism

March 31, 2014 | by Jon Rahl

The mission of the City of Seaside Visitors Bureau has long been to attract, inform and help assist visitors spending time along Oregon’s North Coast. However, with that role comes additional work with hospitality employees and ambassadors throughout the city and Clatsop County. Folks like you that we like to refer to as our stakeholders and ambassadors.

We constantly ask ourselves how we can improve relationships with our stakeholders (anyone working in leisure and hospitality) and how we might be able to better inform our front line staff that help welcome the hundreds of thousands of visitors that come to Seaside each year. With that thought, it’s with pleasure that we unveil the first issue of our quarterly industry newsletter, a vehicle meant to inform and give helpful tips for tourism professionals.

If you’ve read this far, and like the idea, please make sure your email is on our official list. Simply follow this link, enter your email and confirm you’d like to receive the news. You can unsubscribe at any time, but we hope this will be a valuable piece of information for you and your staff. Have a comment, or a feature you’d like to see in a future issue? Send me an email: jrahl@cityofseaside.us! Until then, have a great spring and summer season in Seaside!

and so much more!

SOLV Beach Clean Up

When I look at our beaches I don’t see garbage. I see a breathtaking coastline, and I think how lucky we are to have such pristine beauty right in our own backyard. I believe most beachgoers, both locals and tourists, are conscientious about disposing their refuse properly after a day playing on the beach. So why do we have the SOLV beach cleanup twice a year?
