In Seattle, one of America’s most influential cities, transformation is as vital to the cultural fabric as coffee. The progressive, DIY culture has made Seattle a birthplace for innovation, technology, music, and other creative passions.   

Six reasons Seattle offers a prime culture for productive, inspired meetings:

  1. The Summit building, a block and a half from the existing Arch building, will add up to 248,450 square feet of total exhibit space at WSCC in Spring 2022.
  2. Hotel inventory recently increased by 20 percent, augmenting an already outstanding hotel package. 
  3. Pike Place Market and the Space Needle both underwent renovations highlighting some of the most unique parts of the city. 
  4. Ranking number one for tech and innovation (per CNBC), it’s home to the world’s two most valuable companies, Amazon and Microsoft, as well as 31 Fortune 500 R&D hubs.
  5. Business Insider named Seattle the best U.S. city to launch a startup.
  6. Seattle has the highest share of women-owned businesses in the country at 40 percent.
