The Washington State Convention Center

The Washington State Convention Center

The Washington State Convention Center is a prime location in the heart of downtown Seattle that has seen many world-famous events. It has been the top choice for a variety of events, trade-shows, conventions, exhibits and conferences for over a quarter of a century. Over the years, the facility has hosted over 9,000 events and welcomed some nine million delegates and conventioneers. The facility offers a ballroom, exhibit halls as well as breakout rooms, all in all making up over four hundred thousand feet of flexible space.

The facility’s architecture combines function, beauty and eco-friendly solutions that make it an impressive wonder in itself. In fact, the convention center has received several recognitions and awards including the AIPC Innovation Award-Association by the Internationale des Palais de Congrès, and it was also named the Best Convention Venue in Washington-Northwest by Meetings + Events Magazine. Being an active community leader in green solutions, the center was also presented with the Recycler of the Year Award by the Washington State Recycling Association. Recent renovations not only enhanced the beauty of the Washington Convention Center, it also added environmentally conscious enhancements to an already very green facility.

Thousands of delegates and attendees from recurring events are drawn to the facility each year. Some of Washington State Convention Center’s well attended events include the annual Emerald City ComiCon, The Penny Arcade Expo, the TESOL Convention and the Sakura-Con. The WSCC offers thousands of square-feet space divisible into several heavy-load exhibit spaces, ballrooms and meeting spaces. It boasts of advanced telecommunications technology, connectivity and audio/visual support.

One of the best parts of having an event at WSCC is the food. They have an on-site kitchen handled by a nationally acclaimed award-winning culinary team. The all Pro-Chef Certified team is led by culinary expert Chef José Chavez who has a very close relationship with local farmers, seafood purveyors and vintners. As a result, the facility is able to offer guests the finest and freshest products of the region from fresh Dungeness Crabs, King Salmon, locally grown produce and Washington’s award-winning wines. The WSCC’s catering service believes in sustainable culinary practices and offers a 60 page innovative menu that can be customized to every need.

Another thing that makes the Washington State Convention Center Emerald City’s premier meeting place is its close proximity to the best of downtown Seattle. Guests will never run out of options from the finest restaurants, pubs, hotels to a host of fun activities for the whole family.

  • review rating 4  Nice little spot to stop in and have a bite or a drink. The food is average, but overall an enjoyable experience.

  • review rating 4  If you live or work in Downtown Seattle you already know this is your local watering hole. Full of regulars and interesting conversation at all hours of the day. Chey and Ben are among the GOATS of hospitable bartenders in this city. If you want to chat with software developers or janitors cleaning apartments, this place accepts all creeds and income values. Occasionally smells like vomit but other than that I can't think of a single fault.

  • review rating 5  If you're looking for a more BARK (Burien, Auburn, Renton, Kent) vibe at a bar downtown, look no further. Cheap booze, a jukebox, couple pool tables and usually a fight. Servers don't take **** from patrons starting trouble, but are super lenient to groups just having fun a bit louder than your typical Seattle bar.
