There are a lot of interesting dining and drinking options in the University District.  Everything from mom & pop shops to student dives to sit and relax eateries is within easy walking distance.  The rest of the Seattle food and beverage scene is an easy bus ride or (for those so inclined) drive away.


Hotel Deca is an Art Deco style hotel with stairs in a lot of places.  They have added ramps and lifts to make sure access is available to all of the spaces we will be using.  Please let the conference organizers know if you will need any special accommodations.

Sit by the fire and network or have a drink ... or both.

Art Deco architecture makes for a fun and interesting space to interact in.

The conference venue is the Hotel Deca which is located in the University District in Seattle, Washington.
