Seattle Convention Center Announces Encore As New Event Technology Partner

Newly expanded SCC selects Encore to assist clients with audiovisual services.

SEATTLE, WA (November 15, 2023) — The Seattle Convention Center is pleased to announce they have partnered with Encore to provide the venue’s on-site event technology, creative and production services. Beginning immediately, this partnership will enable SCC's clients to enjoy an enhanced level of meeting excellence.

"SCC is excited to welcome Encore as our preferred audiovisual service provider. Our clients will benefit from Encore’s state-of-the-art technology solutions, highly collaborative process and ability to bring our clients’ visions to life," said Seattle Convention Center President & CEO Jeff Blosser. "They were the standout during the competitive solicitation process and have the capacity to manage multiple events simultaneously as we build operational momentum across two buildings."

In early 2023, the Center nearly doubled in size to just over one million square feet of leasable event space with the addition of Summit, which sits one block away from its original building, Arch. Bookings for both buildings have been robust, with 204 events in 2023, 107 already slated for 2024, and 89 planned for 2025 through 2031. So far this year, three events have utilized both buildings simultaneously, with one more occurring before the end of the year. A majority of meetings at SCC request the support of the audiovisual service partner.

"Encore is honored to be a part of the Seattle Convention Center's celebrated event services team," stated Mike Stengel, Senior Vice President, Strategic Partnerships & Venue Relations at Encore. "Knowing that the convention industry is aways evolving, we are proud to offer our unmatched depth of creative, production, and technology services to deliver events that transform. We look forward to working with the SCC team in both Arch and Summit to create an engaging event experience, one customer, one event at a time."
