Networking at State of Downtown

Seattle’s biggest business event is just around the corner. Join us on Thursday, March 7 for State of Downtown 2024, presented by Lane Powell PC. This year’s event, held at the Seattle Convention Center Summit building, will have a uniquely local focus.

Our program will highlight two transformative projects reshaping downtown: the nearly completed Waterfront Park and the recently announced Elliott Bay Connections project.

We’ll also hear from several city leaders, including Seattle City Council President Sara Nelson and a panel of city leaders, on downtown revitalization, public safety, Seattle’s ongoing drug and homelessness crises and more. And, as always, DSA President & CEO Jon Scholes will share insights and analysis on the present and future state of downtown.

After the program, join us for a networking happy hour with appetizers, drinks, music, conversation and views of downtown’s core from the Summit.

Doors will open at 3 p.m., with the keynote program from 4-5:30 p.m. and the post-event reception from 5:30-7 p.m.
