Unveiling the partnership during its official yacht naming ceremony, Visit Seattle revealed that the Marriott International hotel group is joining its network of Team Supporters for the 2017-18 race..

The globally recognised Marriott International has a strong presence in Seattle with its portfolio of properties including the leading Seattle Waterfront Hotel, located close to where the Clipper Race fleet will be berthed at the Port of Seattle’s Bell Harbor Marina.

As the Clipper Race crew and their supporters descend on the city for the Seattle stopover, the Marriott International is aiming to raise brand favourability and drive acquisition by offering affordable rates to visitors to the city.

The international nature of the Clipper Race compliments the global presence that the Marriot brand has, allowing activation across multiple key markets that the fleet will visit during the 11-month campaign.
