Seattle, WA is a former Gold Rush town, where in the 1890s, the race was on for Klondike gold. That rush is long over, but the Seattle of the new millennium is still a place to which people flock. These days, it’s all about technology and business, with no less than 8 Fortune 500 companies based here, including Amazon, Microsoft, Costco®, and Starbucks.
The city is a captain of industry, but there’s so much more to it. Seattle is also the birthplace of grunge music, and every Labor Day Weekend is home to one of the country’s biggest annual music and arts festivals, Bumbershoot®.
There are excellent convention and conference centers in Seattle, along with a range of hotels, including some that prove a great hotel or venue doesn’t need to be a big one! While the Washington State Convention Center, Bell Harbor International Conference Center, and Hyatt® Regency Seattle all boast well over 100,000 square feet of event and meeting space, Seattle’s boutique hotels and venues have a lot to offer too.
