Where will you hold your next big event in Washington? As you plan your upcoming conference, training, or benefit dinner, take a look at why Bellevue’s Meydenbauer Convention Center is an optimal choice. The biggest benefit of hosting at Meydenbauer Center is convenience. Think great location and great amenities all in one space.
1. The perfect proximity
Enjoy the ease of being close to Seattle and in the heart of the Puget Sound Region. Sea-Tac airport is only 17 miles away, so traveling professionals can quickly reach the event venue. Accommodations are a breeze to find, with 2,500 nearby hotel rooms in downtown Bellevue to choose from.
Meydenbauer Convention Center is located in the hub of downtown Bellevue. Event attendees will have access to The Bravern’s luxury shops and restaurants, Bellevue Square’s premier retailers, and an array of restaurants. In between presentations, attendees can unwind in downtown Bellevue’s 20-acre park with a peaceful waterfall.
2. In-house tech teams and one point of contact
You don’t want a detail to go unnoticed at your event. Meydenbauer’s power and internet team and audiovisual team are both in-house, so you have go-to resources that are efficient and responsive. Working with in-house teams means access to technical professionals who not only know their industries—but they’re well-versed in your venue. You can rely on them to not miss a beat of your production plans, from internet to overhead lighting. Your Guest Services Manager will function as your first point of contact, so you can spend less time tracking down solutions and more time watching your event come together.
3. Discounts that tie in food and room costs
Meydenbauer Center’s savings will help your event budget: 20% of the amount you spend on food and beverages will be subtracted from your room rental. And with a full menu by in-house catering that sources many items locally and features Washington and Oregon wines, you’ll be able to select just the right flavors for your event—while saving on convention center space rates.
4. Versatile floor plans
Meydenbauer Convention Center has 54,000 square feet of event space to choose a floor plan from. We’ll help you analyze floor plans, seating and room layouts and recommend which space is the best fit for your event, whether it’s an annual kick-off meeting or a new training. If you want to add an elegant touch, there’s also a 410-seat performance theatre. With the help of Meydenbauer’s technical teams, you can continue to customize your event space with visual elements like lighting.
5. Ample parking
You’ll likely need accessible areas for supply load-in, and you’ll definitely need parking for your event’s attendees. Meydenbauer Center’s garage has 434 stalls, with six overflow lots in downtown Bellevue available if the convention center reaches capacity.
