Trending: Expedia cuts 3,000 jobs, including 500 at new Seattle HQ — read the internal email to employees


The 2016 GeekWire Summit officially kicked off on Monday evening, the start of the Pacific Northwest’s premier technology conference — and our biggest event yet.

Online real estate company Zillow Group hosted the Welcome Party at their downtown Seattle HQ. Summit attendees, speakers, and other VIPs enjoyed tasty food, cold drinks, and great networking with amazing views of the Seattle waterfront. It was a warm-up party to the next two days, where innovators, entrepreneurs, business executives and tech leaders will come together to explore the future of the innovation economy.
