Major Seattle Conventions, Meetings and Events

If you have any flexibility in the dates on which you wish to travel, it is always best to make sure you are not choosing a time to go to a city during a major convention or other major event (unless, of course, that is the reason that you are going!). Seattle can have a number of large gatherings each year, but also be wary of the weeks where there are multiple intermediate sized conventions or other major events, including sporting events, festivals, concerts and parades. Seattle has many hotel rooms, however prices and availability can be effected during a large Seattle convention or major Seattle event. In addition, the effect on Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (Sea-Tac) flight delays and flight overbooking, traffic, cabs and shuttles can effect your travels, and increased volume can also translate into increased time and cost. If a Seattle event is occurring in the part of the city where you are heading, traffic (and parking) can be an issue. We have listed some of the largest conferences, and some additional useful links to help you anticipate crowds and expect delays. For a complete list of Seattle Events, you can check out the Seattle events calendar from the Seattle Center web site. You may also want to check out the Seattle convention calendar from the Washington State Convention and Trade Center as well. Don't forget about Seattle's sporting events - some of the calenders are on the Seattle Center Web site, and you can check the Seattle Seahawks schedule here. The Seattle events and festivals can effect your Seattle travels, but if you have a flight delay, you might even want to go to some of them yourself!
