Newer construction, light-filled gathering areas, good catering, meeting rooms of various sizes,.... and easy parking nearby. As close to the SeaTac Airport as downtown Seattle venues.

I was here for a professional conference. They did a great job of set up, the rooms were comfortable and easy to hear in. The ballroom was set up for lunch, it was easy to hear the keynote speakers and the service was excellent.

The Tacoma Convention Center is an outstanding venue to hold any size event. You will find this facility to be much more affordable than similar size facilities in Seattle and much nicer too. We have held the WA State Elementary Chess Championships at this venue...More
