Unlike traditional event-hub cities, with their scattered and siloed industries, here in Seattle, restaurants start their own record labels, radio stations become community hubs, healthcare and technology feed each other, and old brands discover ways to become new again.
And this collaborative, interconnected city is growing. This summer, the Washington State Convention Center broke ground on the Summit building, an additional facility just a block away from the Arch, our existing building. The new facility will add 248,450 sq. ft. of expo space (including 99,250 square feet of carpeted flex space two floors above), 102,040 square feet of meetings rooms, and a 58,000 square foot ballroom with a fantastic view of the city. Seattle’s hotel inventory is growing too—by 20% in the next year! Eight new properties will augment an already outstanding brand mix and add almost 2,500 additional rooms, bringing the downtown room count to 14,343.
