Memorable and engaging experiences for meeting attendees

Meeting professionals know that making lasting impressions on convention attendees happens throughout an event. It requires thinking strategically about all aspects of the event from the opening reception, to the meeting venue, to where to hold your organization’s board meeting and how you can create memorable and engaging experiences all along the way.

New trends in convention and facility design mean that meeting venues offer engaging lighting and sound systems, creative gathering spaces and a range of interactive technologies that maximize the attendee meeting experience. Meydenbauer  Center’s recent renovation delivers a range of new lighting options, offers comfortable and flexible lobby seating that provides opportunities for attendee interaction and all new AV technologies make it even easier to bring your presentations to life.

Bellevue also offers a range of unique venues that are perfect for a reception for your entire group or smaller events for VIP dinners or events.  At KidsQuest Children’s Museum, your guests can engage their inner child while exploring the exhibits at a reception.

At the Bellevue Arts Museum, three diverse event spaces can be rented out for private events set against a backdrop of impressive architecture and exhibits. Or you can host a reception on stage at Meydenbauer Center’s Theatre.

We can also recommend venues where you’re able to take in views of Bellevue skylines or enjoy a meal or reception on a beautiful outdoor patio surrounded by the sights and sounds of the Pacific Northwest.
