2014 Heart of The Sound

The Heart of the Sound (HOTS) brochure is the primary visitor publication distributed to other chambers, off-Island tourist locations and mailed to potential visitors.  Additionally, the HOTS is the most requested map of Vashon at the ferry terminals and in Island shops and restaurants.  This year we hope to expand our reach to include more destinations such as the Seattle waterfront, cruise terminals and possibly expanding further on the Washington State Ferries.

Last year we printed 12,000 copies of the Heart of the Sound and they are almost gone.  This means your business information is going to a lot of people coming to our Island.

Here are some of the reasons businesses should consider participating in the Heart of the Sound and why:

·        People want to know where to eat, where to stay and what to do (meaning lodging, restaurants, tea/coffee and activities)

·       People need to know what services they might need while they are visiting or moving to the Island (including medical, pet care, massage and beauty practitioners among others)

·       Since people often use the HOTS when relocating to Vashon, they need information for housing (including real estate, escrow, insurance and banking)

The deadline for the 2014 Heart of the Sound is February 11th!  Please complete the HOTS form

Please feel free to contact either Jim or Sue at the Chamber (463-6217) for more information or any questions you might have.  We look forward to helping your promote your business!
