FOOD & BEVERAGE

Every event should begin with food...

Take a look at our food & beverage options that are available to our attendees. These are in addition to our networking events (see Networking page for more details).

CONFERENCE PROVIDED F&B

As ​a part of our ongoing commitment to making your experience as enjoyable as possible, we are once again able to provide our attendees with a limited assortment of daily drinks and lite bites. 

Breakfast will include an assortment of light continental bites along with coffee, tea and juice to jump start your morning.

Our morning and afternoon breaks will be your chance to refuel with an assortment of light bites; just enough to tide you over.

All of our F&B offerings are limited in choice and quantity. Please no grumbling  - it's FREE! 

Remember to visit our exhibitors as you sip your beverage or enjoy your snack!

LUNCH - ON YOUR OWN

The Microsoft campus is HUGE! With over 8 million square feet of office space and nearly 40,000 employees, it is impossible to assume you will be able to venture far for lunch. Fortunately, we have you covered with local options!

A short, 100 yard walk from our conference venue is the site of the Commons Mixer. Here you'll find a 2-story building that is home to numerous food offerings that include sandwiches, burgers, pizza, international cuisine and more. Providing a nearby location with fast service will prevent you from missing any of our post-lunch sessions! 

Please note that lunch is on your own and NOT provided. 

DINNER AND MORE - ON YOUR OWN

You won't find more dining, shopping and entertainment options in one place that is a mere 10-30 minute drive from the host hotel (depending upon traffic).

SEATTLE

If you have the time, a visit to downtown Seattle is always a tourist highlight. Aside from the hit attractions like the Space Needle, Seattle Great Wheel, Pike Place Market,  Museum of Pop Culture and much more.

Downtown is a 15-60 minute drive (depending upon traffic)  from the host hotel or take advantage of public transit if you wish (there is a transit center within walking distance to the hotel).
