Events Industry is Alive and Well in the Pacific Northwest
By Keenan Scott |
The value of bringing together groups of like-minded individuals for a common purpose is as big as it's ever been. Large-scale conferences, corporate celebrations, educational seminars, product launches and trade shows are just some of the types of events happening every month in the Pacific Northwest.
Of all the industries that have gone through drastic changes in the past few years, the Events industry is one of the more obvious, especially in the Pacific Northwest. After nearly two years of little to no in-person events happening in the area, we saw a big return to "normal" in 2022. The opening of new properties like hotels and convention centers, as well as constant renovations and expansions to already existing properties, has lead to a huge increase in available event spaces all across the Pacific Northwest. This trend only looks to continue in 2023, which creates a ton of opportunity for any company looking to be in the event space.
While corporations are moving more towards online networking and introductions, in-person and hybrid events are still great places to build professional relationships and connect with other individuals in your industry. Corporate events provide opportunities to network with other companies, share ideas, and engage in face-to-face interactions.
The annual Northwest Events Show in Seattle is held at the Washington State Convention Center, and 2023 was the first year that it took place in the convention center's Summit Building, the newest addition to the Washington State Convention Center which just recently opened in January of this year. Hundreds of companies had exhibitions at this year's event, including AlphaGraphics Seattle!
In addition to having our own exhibition booth at the trade show, AG was also responsible for providing the signage material for several other booths at the event.
With so many different ways to market your products and services at a large event like a trade show or conference, it's important to find ways to stand out. This is where we can help! From large backdrops and banners to small signage and tablecloths for displays, AlphaGraphics provides high-quality materials that can help spruce up your trade show booth and make it stand out to your customers.
Featured in the gallery below is a small sample of the different types of materials we provide for events.
