Day 1 of IDC will take place at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel, located just steps from Pike Place Market, the waterfront, museums and world-class shopping. This landmark since 1924 has offered nearly a century of luxury service standards, while melding classic elegance with mid-century modern room décor. 

We will be among the first to visit after its freshly finished multi-million dollar renovation, which brings new life to the design, the culinary offerings and the social experience of this unique space. 

A block of rooms has been reserved here at a discounted rate of $288 per night just for IDC guests.



Address: 411 University St, Seattle, WA 98101



Days 2 & 3 of IDC will take place at Benaroya Hall, the home of the Seattle Symphony in downtown Seattle. 


Occupying an entire city block at the very core of the city, this beautiful and sophisticated property celebrates the vital role of performance events. It also allows for the continuity of commercial life along one avenue and provides a much-needed public space, in the form of a terraced garden, along another. 


High-end hotels, retail shops, culinary delights and local attractions are all within close walking distance. 

Address: 200 University St, Seattle, WA 98101
