This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Washington State Convention Center (WSCC). On June 18, 1988, James Ellis, thenchairman of the board of directors for the convention center, cut the ribbon, and the doors were open for business. Today, the center welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors from around the world and around the corner to its halls each year, and has brought billions of dollars into the state of Washington. Happy anniversary, WSCC! May the next 30 be equally as fruitful.  

TED’s five-year tenure in the Northwest has been filled with innovation, lessons and surprises. 

 

When looking for inventive event ideas or fascinating speakers, planners should turn to the annual event that continues to shake up the industry.
