Sitting on the rich, saltwater shores of Puget Sound and hugged between the snow-capped peaks of two mountain ranges, few American cities can match the natural splendor of Seattle, Washington. When hosting corporate or incentive events in Seattle, which is home to Uniquely Northwest’s headquarters, we love to offer venues and experiences which mirror the great landscapes and ecosystems of our area.
Easily one of our favorite private event sites to really capture that sense of place is the Seattle Aquarium. The historic space, situated in the heart of Seattle’s waterfront district, is charming and warm with high wooden beams and breathtaking aquatic features. Imagine a gala dinner with the ‘Window on Washington State’, a gigantic 120,000 gallon tank teaming with more than 800 fish and invertebrates, as your backdrop! Or how about a cocktail bar situated within a 360 degree underwater viewing room, where sharks glide by as guests re-cap the highlights of their incentive trip.
Guests can also roam the Aquarium to enjoy the extensive exhibits, and even get a hands-on experience with the touch tanks. For a very fun and unique aspect to the event, we can even arrange for guests to watch a feeding session of the resident Sea Otters. Expert interpreters are on-hand to enhance the experience and answer questions.
The dining options at the Seattle Aquarium also showcase the best of the area, utilizing fresh and local ingredients (including sustainably-sourced seafood) and including some of the fantastic wines produced right here in Washington state. The event space is fully equipped with state-of-the-art audio/visual equipment and support as well, for a smooth and impactful presentation as part of a conference or meeting.
From casual post-conference events to lavish incentive trip galas, guests always come away from the events we have hosted at the Seattle Aquarium energized and delighted by their experience!“We are proud members of the Association of Destination Management Executives International”
