Seattle Metro Magazine Features Yakima Valley Insert

September 10, 2010

The September edition of Seattle Met is on the newsstands and it includes a 16-page insert on our Valley.  We are pleased to see the result of our work over the past few months.   New Vision worked with several other local partners to underwrite this promotional piece.  The magazine enjoys the fastest growing circulation of any publication in the Puget Sound.  The reader demographics also represent a key target market for our community.

The publication features articles on our regional lifestyle, wine industry growth, health care, local philanthropy, and special homegrown festivals and events.  New Vision plans to use overprints of the magazine insert as marketing pieces.  We can use them with some of our business prospects, but the piece is also great information for people considering a move to our community.
