Business Trip Guide

Regional Info

Knowing who’s who and talking to them when you are here can help you find out what’s what; however, it’s good business practice to come somewhat informed before you arrive. You can get a head start by reading up on industry reports, local facts and statistics, and other on-line resources listed here. For instance, while most of you know of corporate giants like The Boeing Company and Microsoft Corporation, you may be surprised to learn that Greater Seattle is also home to a plethora of other worldwide business success stories. Greater Seattle is a leader in four of the key industries of the future: aerospace, software, telecommunications and biotechnology.
