Top 5 Reasons To Meet in Seattle

1Walkable, Compact Downtown

In Seattle’s safe, vibrant, compact downtown, everything is close at hand. Dozens of major hotels—with more than 4,200 committable rooms—are within walking distance of the centrally located Washington State Convention Center, as are numerous restaurants, attractions, and meeting facilities. Having all these amenities within easy reach means attendees can maximize their time in town and also enjoy significant savings on transportation.

2Attendees Love Seattle

Seattle, with its endless pre and post options, appeals to everyone. In fact, nearly 50% of the meetings held in Seattle exceed attendance expectations. While here, attendees are able to explore before, during, or after the event with a variety of activities and attractions, from renowned shops, restaurants, and bars to breathtaking outdoor sights, cultural landmarks, and museums—all within a stone’s throw of the city’s world-class hotels and meeting venues.

Hold your convention, meeting or event in a city that lives, breathes, and is green.

Attendees can stay in a LEED-certified hotel, enjoy a locally-sourced meal, drink from 100 percent compostable water bottles, and ride a hybrid bus. Visit Seattle and the Washington State Convention Center can work with you to find more ways to lessen your meeting’s environmental impact.
