SPokane


Spokane Convention Center

The Spokane Convention Center campus sits on the banks of the Spokane  River located in the heart of downtown providing spectacular views of  the 100-acre Riverfront Park along with close access to numerous  restaurants, hotels, entertainment opportunities and unique  shopping. The campus, which includes the INB Performing Arts Center and  the Spokane Convention Center is attached to two major hotels and  surrounded by many others. Built specifically to host events, the  Spokane Convention Center is the  region’s premier choice for  conventions, consumer shows, banquets, meetings and social events.   

Set in scenically beautiful eastern Washington, where sunshine and fresh air are abundant, Spokane is a hip and vibrant urban center. Delegates can indulge in fine dining, wine tasting, great shopping, arts, entertainment and nightlife - along with abundant outdoor adventures - all within a few minutes' walk. 

Notably, Spokane has been named America’s (2nd) Best Riverfront City (USA Today), one of six small U.S. towns for food lovers (Wall Street Journal), and one of America’s best outdoor cities (Outdoor Magazine).

The city is easy to get around and easily accessible via the Spokane International Airport, which is one of the Top 10 Most Efficient U.S. Airports (100 daily flights) 

Marriott's Davenport Grand, Autograph Collection

Summit participants can stay at the Marriott's Davenport Grand, Autograph Collection, just across the street from the Spokane Convention Center and only blocks away from shopping, nightlife and the decadent dining Downtown  Spokane is known for. The beautiful  Centennial Trail and the entertaining INB Performing Arts Center are  also nearby. 

Stylish rooms with a calm ambiance, free high-speed wireless internet, a 55-inch  flat-panel TV and large workspace, each room was designed with your business routine in mind, and when it's time to refuel, head over to Table  13 and enjoy a delicious selection of tapas, meals and evening  libations, or socialize over cocktails while enjoying breathtaking views of Riverfront Park from the rooftop terrace.
