Testimonials

"Spokane is a beautiful city and was a great host for our event. Everyone, from the hotels to the convention center to the city government to the restaurants and other businesses, made the international science fiction community who attended Sasquan feel right at home... Spokane is definitely on the international map within Worldcon fandom!"

Mike Willmoth, Vice Chair, Sasquan, Spokane Worldcon 2015

"I wanted to again express a sincere "thank you" for the outstanding support you and your organization provided to Gonzaga University recently, as hosts for the WSCA Convention 2015.

As you are aware, we have received effusive praise from the WSCA Executive Committee regarding the organization and operation of the Convention, and we could not have accomplished this without your magnanimous support."

John Caputo, Ph.D., Professor and Walter Ong, S.J. Scholar, Gonzaga University, Western States Communication Association Annual Convention 2015

"In addition to great sessions, Spokane and Gonzaga, as well as our other local colleges and universities come off as wonderful places. You know you only have one opportunity to make a first impression, and we made a great impression."

"The IAL hosted another fabulous Voice Institute/Annual Meeting this past June 5-9, 2013 in Spokane, WA. There were many highlights; Spokane was exceptional in every way: beautiful weather, architecture, and physical beauty. The downtown park and river were located beside the hotel and many activities were within walking distance."

Jodi Knott, M.S., CCC/SLP, International Association of Laryngectomees

"The city was the perfect size to hold our meeting and had the necessary amenities of a walkable downtown (drug store, shopping, restaurants, etc.). The shop keepers and restaurateurs seemed excited to have us and our attendees felt appreciated. Spokane was a stellar meeting city for this conference."

"Asked whether Spokane would be a convention destination she would recommend to others Gabriela Contreras responded: "Definitely! It is a place where you have the best of both worlds; you can connect with nature (mountains, parks, trees) but you also have the city aspect with great shopping, museums, great restaurants and other attractions. Great walking city."

Gabriela Contreras, Assistant to Executive Director & Exhibit Hall Manager, Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America

"Easy access to the airport, lots to see, and an overall great experience. I would recommend Spokane to anyone making conference arrangements in the State of Washington. I had never been to Spokane before our first conference in 2007; I was pleasantly surprised with what I saw. Enough to re-book our 2009 conference and hopefully future conferences as well." 

Kelly Keeney, Program Coordinator, Washington State GEAR UP Northwest Regional Conference.

Esther Larsen, Spokane County Drug Endangered Children Project Director

"I was concerned that Spokane was following New York City and New Orleans, but I have been to the city often enough to know it is becoming a city of significance. The members agreed. This is the first time I have heard no complaints!"

Michael J. Ball, Director, Higher Education Coordinating Board / State Approving Agency

"The rally was a great success and our members truly enjoyed their visit to the area. Many of the 6,187 attendees experienced the Northwest for the very first time and the positive feedback was tremendous. They found the area beautiful and the businesses and citizens very accommodating."
