Where Seattle’s Event Professionals Meet: Metropolist

Tags , , , , , , , ,

Where do the events professionals meet in Seattle? This month the International Live Events Association (ILEA) chapter members met at Metropolist in SODO.

We were the hub and host this month! It was a pleasure to invite and welcome the 80-ish members of the Seattle ILEA chapter this month. Events are all about the details, and this meeting was indeed a detail-focused event in itself.

Scroll through and see for yourself!

It was a blast to partner with other prime event specialists for the June meeting:

Next ILEA Seattle event? 
It’s a luncheon meeting at Columbia Tower on July 26 from 11:30 – 1:30pm. Mary Ellen Reihsen will be talking about Event Contracts.

Pre-registration is required, so go ahead and take care of that now right here.

Your best personal events aren’t “thrown”, they are prepared for, thoughtfully and thoroughly. And then nurtured and opened to have a life of its own to delight everyone involved, invited and intrinsic to its best end.

Consider Metropolist for your next event.
Because details matter.
