SEA the possibilities

Nestled between majestic Mount Rainier and peaceful Puget Sound, Seattle is the center for convergent media and technology of the Pacific Northwest. Few cities offer natural beauty juxtaposed with the modern urban setting like Seattle does. Even through the infamous rain, you and your staff will find elements that shine. From Pulitzer Prize-winning professionals to a multitude of successful sports teams and the journalists who cover them, you’ll “SEA” what we are talking about.

While attending the JEA/NSPA Spring National High School Convention at the Sheraton Seattle Hotel and Washington State Convention Center April 6-9, 2017, delegates have a range of things to do and see. Explore the downtown region, catch a fish at Pike Place Market, see the skyline from the world-famous Space Needle or watch the world rotate from the new Ferris wheel on the pier. Seattle has so much to offer.
