Tourism Promotion

Leveraging economic development grants and programs provided by the Port of Seattle, the City of Burien has engaged with partners in the tourism and travel industry to promote Burien as a place to visit, eat and shop.

Through a grant-funded partnership with the Seattle Southside Regional Tourism Authority, the City directed a robust marketing program focused on travelers and visitors flying into and/or staying near Sea-Tac Airport. The marketing program includes a video featuring Burien's top visitor attractions and ads in widely distributed travel planners and dining guides. These marketing efforts aim to better connect airport users and travelers to Burien businesses.

And through a Port Spotlight Advertising pilot program, the City was given rights to advertise our “Foodie Paradise” in the Sea-Tac Airport D Terminal with no cost to the City for the advertising space.
