GeekWire Gala 2017, presented by Wells Fargo

The GeekWire Gala brings together the Seattle tech community to celebrate “The Year in Geek.”
The Seattle tech community’s holiday tradition.

Join us from 6 to 10 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 6 at the Museum of History & Industry (860 Terry Avenue N Seattle), to celebrate the region’s tech community in style.

We will also once again unveil The Seattle 10, our list of the 10 most promising startup companies in the region who will display their business concepts on giant cocktail napkins.

Make our gala your holiday party! Bring old friends, colleagues, significant or insignificant others, and enjoy an evening of conversation, tasty treats and festive cocktails with our region’s vibrant tech community.

We’re expecting a big crowd for the Gala, and traffic in South Lake Union can be a real mess, so please arrive early and check out these transit and parking options. Best option is to take the bus, street car or walk.

If you must drive your own vehicle, the suggested parking lot is northwest of the museum at the AGC lot at 1200 Westlake Avenue North.

In terms of dress code, you have the rare license to don cocktail attire in Seattle — or wear whatever you want for that matter. Tuxedos? Sure. Geeky T-shirts? Yep. Or, get in the spirit and come dressed as Frosty, one of Santa’s little elves or your favorite Star Wars character from the ice planet Hoth. The photo booth will offer plenty of opportunities to showcase your sweet duds.
