GeekGirlCon needs your help for 2012!
We are currently seeking a venue for next year’s convention. That’s right, GeekGirlCon 2012.
Unfortunately, we will not be able to use the Northwest Rooms again (where 2011 is happening) due to the space being annexed by local Seattle radio station KEXP.
Our staff has been busy seeking a space, but we’d sure appreciate suggestions that you may have. Those hidden, cool places in the city we love. We know you love GeekGirlCon just as much as we do and that many of you live in Seattle and just might know a really great venue for 2012.
Our requirements for a venue:
1) Located in Seattle. Sorry, Sea-Tac, Bellevue, and Everett, but we’re looking in the Seattle zip codes only.
2) Holds 1,500-2,000 people.
3) Has multiple rooms of different sizes. We require at least three rooms for programming, one to two rooms for gaming, and a vendor/exhibitor room.
Thank you so much for your suggestions.
Covention Center in the heart of downtown seems to work well for every other geek convention. They have many levels and many rooms of variying sizes. Also Key Arena center in Queen Anne is another option.
It’s a shame Bellevue isn’t an option; there are a bunch of locations in the downtown area.
What about the WSCC Annex? Multiple rooms, expo space, excellent location.
There’s also the CLINK (Qwest Field) Events Center.
@Aubry I don’t think Chicago is in Seattle…
UW maybe? Seattle Center?
UW maybe or Seattle Center? I will keep the wheels turning on this. It would be incredibly cool if EMP could accommodate.
Pacific Science Center?
the new Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI) location – the armory building on south lake union, seems like it would be a good location and its big enough. A little farther afield: Sandpoint or Museum of Flight.
Maybe you can track down the Japanese calligraphy folks and find out where they are going next year. 😉
Yall should not limit yourself to Seattle! New Orleans has lots of places for you to set up shop!!!!!!!!
