planning ahead

December 20, 2021

Last here in 2014, the AWP Conference is returning to Seattle… March 8-11, 2023.

Will the Convention Center be ready? The expansion is well underway. The July 2021 construction update said, “The Washington State Convention Center (WSCC) Addition — also known as the Summit building — is one year from completion” and the Summit page on the WSCC website projects a January 2023 opening.

AWP 2021 was all virtual; AWP 2022, scheduled March 23–26 in Philadelphia, is expected to be a hybrid event, with virtual components. AWP 2023 is anyone’s guess. Mark your calendar and watch for details.
