Seattle Condo Expo 2007
The Seattle Condo Expo and Realtor Symposium is set for May 19th & 20th at the Westin Hotel. Tickets will go on sale on May 1st and those interested in attending can register on their website. The cost of the event is $10 and can be purchased at www.SeattleTixx.com.
Kiro Radio has several short podcasts of interviews with several leading individuals in the Seattle condo craze including the developers of AVA & 1 Hotel, Blaine Weber of Weber + Thompson, Dean Jones of Realogics and economist Matthew Gardner of Gardner-Johnson…to name a few.
The event has blossomed into a two-day expo with a consumer focus. Last year, it was a single evening event aimed towards Realtors. The change this year sounds like a great opportunity for the buyers to immerse themselves with various projects at a single location as well as provide an opportunity to meet with architects and developers.
