Visit Seattle has partnered with Experient to provide their event housing services.

“Experient is well respected in the industry and shares the same values and commitment to excellent customer service as our organization,” says Katy Willis, director of convention services, Visit Seattle. “This partnership will allow us to be even more laser focused on finding new and creative ways to differentiate Visit Seattle and the incredible services we offer.”

This partnership will give Visit Seattle the ability to provide housing options and extraordinary service to groups holding meetings and events in the city.

“We’re excited to put our company’s unmatched customer service, event technologies, experience and passion to work for Visit Seattle’s clients,” says Michael Guerriero, Experient’s division president. “We look forward to a long, valuable partnership helping them continue to bring new events and attendees to such an amazing city.”

In the early 1990s, Washington communities and activists had a vision of maintaining green wilderness and creating space where people could embrace the outdoors near urban cities like Seattle. “We’re all better and healthier when we’re connected to nature,” says Caroline Villanova, community and partnerships manager at Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust.

 

Visit Seattle, in partnership with the King County government, will host “Cloudbreak: Seattle’s Revive Live Music Fest,” in support of Seattle’s music community. 

 

From making her kids’ Kraken Halloween costumes inspired by Seattle’s National Hockey League team to chasing the sun in eastern Washington looking for spots to camp, Kelly Saling’s love for the Pacific Northwest is apparent in all aspects of her life—including her career. Promoted to senior vice president and chief sales officer at Visit Seattle in September 2021, Saling pulls from this personal appreciation to plug people into the region’s array of venues, natural landscapes, and everything in between.
