Where Does Matter.
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 what 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. It has 205,000gsf of exhibit space and a 30,000gsf ballroom. Our headquarter hotel can provide 1000 rooms on peak night with another 2500 guest rooms all within 4-5 blocks of the convention center. Plus, we’ve got some news: Seattle is expecting a second convention center just a block away from the current building and a new Hyatt Regency with 1260 guest rooms opening in mid 2018!
