Amazon.com is holding a sizable meeting of employees today at KeyArena in Seattle, triggering traffic alerts for the surrounding neighborhood. About 1,800 employees are attending.
It’s not unusual for Amazon to hold its big employee meeting at KeyArena, but what caught our attention is that Amazon already had its big annual employee meeting there in March of this year.
Company employees checking in to the location on foursquare today are describing it as an all-hands meeting, but the numbers are smaller than the 7,000 employees that were expected back in March.
We tried, but Amazon isn’t telling us what the meeting is about. From what we’re hearing separately, it’s probably too much to think that Jeff Bezos might give Amazon employees a sneak peek at the company’s forthcoming tablet computer, but hey, you never know.
