It’s as simple as that. The destination can make all the difference in setting an invigorating and engaging tone for a successful meeting. Seattle is an urban hub of innovation and technology surrounded by unmatched natural beauty of water and mountains—it’s no wonder attendees love to meet here.
Getting around is a snap with an extremely walkable, compact downtown with we call “high heel blocks” where it’s not uncommon for a single building to occupy the entire block. Silver Leed-certified Washington State Convention Center (WSCC) is located right in the thick of all the downtown activity and is mere steps from shops, restaurants, attractions and hotels—not to mention iconic Pike Place Market, just six blocks away. Plus, we’ve got some news: Seattle is expecting a second convention center just a block away from the current building.

“As expected, Seattle provided an outstanding backdrop for an educational event and offered all of the culture, entertainment, dining, shopping, activities, and site-seeing options convention participants possibly could want. I continue to hear that attendees received an extremely warm welcome from individuals throughout the Emerald City and that service levels were exceptional. We’ll be back!”--Glenn M.
