About the Washington State Convention Center

For over 25 years, Washington State Convention Center has been the Northwest’s premier meetings and events facility. WSCC welcomes thousands of visitors from around the globe each year, offering award-winning catering menus along with comprehensive, industry-leading services for event planners, exhibitors and guests. Located in the heart of Seattle, a city resonating with innovative minds and a vibrant arts scene, the WSCC is within walking distance of world-class hotels, restaurants, hospitals, and a myriad of the Northwest’s best entertainment and attractions options.  With a longstanding commitment to sustainability, public art and modern technology, WSCC serves its surrounding community and provides visitors with a truly unique Northwest experience.

 

Aramark’s award winning, all Pro-Chef certified culinary team at the WSCC, works hard to exceed the expectations of every guest. We are the only convention center in the country - and the only banquet operation in the city - to be honored with the NACE “Best On-Premise Catering Event” award. Our chefs create unique, regional dishes, made with locally sourced produce, seafood, meats and wines, in our scratch kitchen. Even the flour used in our in-house bakery comes from no-till farms in Eastern Washington. WSCC and Aramark are committed to the underlying ethical standards that match Seattle’s social conscience. What we do in our kitchen for events cannot be duplicated by other convention centers; what we do can only happen in Washington.
