Seattle

Seattle is two cities in one. It’s a world-class metropolis set within wild, beautiful natural surroundings, offering the best of urban lifestyle while embracing the rugged outdoors.

Many of Seattle’s top visitor attractions are within mere blocks of the Washington State Convention Center, including the Pike Place Market, Pioneer Square, Seattle Art Museum, Seattle Symphony, ferries, world-class restaurants and a historic theatre district. Three national parks lie within a two-hour drive of Seattle and the city is a gateway to the San Juan Islands, Olympic Peninsula, Washington Wine Country and British Columbia.

Washington State Convention Center

The Washington State Convention Center (WSCC) is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Seattle, offering on-site parking, business services, and dining options – all within easy walking distance of over 7,000 first-class hotels, restaurants, shopping, and local attractions.

The WSCC offers an industry-recognized service ethic and is the only convention center to have earned the National Association of Catering Executives “Best On-Premise Catered Event”.

Sheraton Grand Hotel

Additional meetings and events will be held at the Sheraton Grand Hotel, the official headquarter hotel of Nutrition 2020.

Things to Do

The city has a unique allure to it, and some things, like feeling the breeze on your face as you stroll along Pike Place Market and stocking up on coffee beans like it’s the end of the world, are essential experiences to have here. Whatever you’re into, we have compiled a list of attractions and restaurants in the area.

RESTAURANTS

Seattle is a hidden gem for foodies. The city’s dining community is carving out a niche by showcasing its roots in seafood and vegetable-focused fare. Its unique flavors — born out of a wet climate, access to an abundance of shellfish and a prime Pacific Rim location — translate into fresh, light, local food with Asian and Hawaiian influences. That means plenty of salmon — especially the famous Copper River variety — along with Penn Cove mussels, Pacific oysters, Dungeness crab and local seasonal vegetables like wild mushrooms, sun chokes, kohlrabi and hazelnuts.

ATTRACTIONS

What to see in Seattle? As a first timer or a frequent visitor, no trip would be complete without stopping by some of the city’s most iconic attractions, such as Pike Place Market and the Space Needle. Don’t forget to stroll around the Olympic Sculpture Park, or Discovery Park. For a thrilling adventure, hop in the car for a daytrip to Mount Si. Though, if it starts to rain, then head back inside to see the glass-blown works at Chihuly Garden and Glass, learn about pop culture, the Museum of Pop Culture, and maritime history, Ballard Locks, or take an underground tour in Pioneer Square.
