The Puget Sound tech sector is exploding. Since the '90s, our information technology sector created two-thirds of Washington’s job growth, which now represents 27 percent of all jobs in the state, mostly in the Puget Sound area. At the same time, cities are striving to achieve aggressive sustainability goals. With this growth driving our real estate market, are our developments and land use policies meeting the demands of this vital sector in ways that help us achieve our climate goals?

What innovations and strategies should we be pursuing to accommodate this momentum? Where does the tech talent crunch fit in? And how can the public and private sectors work together more effectively to create the sustainable future we all say we want?

Come hear the experts and share your views on one of the region's major opportunities – to lead the world in many sectors by growing our tech sector.

Biographies and more information about each speaker is on Northeastern Seattle's website.

We'll be exploring new economic development strategies, transportation solutions, and exploring Bellevue's Spring District as a real-world case study. Don't miss this panel discussion on one of the key challenges facing our future. Please join us!
