A Success Story in 2016, 2017 and 2018

January 25, 2019 Peninsula Daily News – More than 295 million pairs of eyes viewed Port Angeles marketing materials last year, helping the city break another record for lodging tax collections, the City Council heard at its recent meeting.

Vertigo Marketing, the Oregon firm that has promoted Port Angeles as a tourist destination since 2016, delivered glowing year-end statistics at the council meeting Jan. 15.

“Council member Cherie Kidd said Vertigo has “made all the difference” for marketing the city … We’ve just watched it just grow and expand exponentially,” Kidd said.

December 2017 – “With lodging tax revenue at an all-time high, the city of Port Angeles has renewed a contract with Vertigo Marketing to promote the city as a tourist destination…Whatever Vertigo Marketing is doing, it’s working,” outgoing Mayor Patrick Downie said at the Dec. 19 council meeting.”
