Recent Customer Feedback

"I love working with the Lynnwood Convention Center. All staff members are amazing, especially Paul, and there is such an ease in planning with this location." ~  University of Oregon

"An upbeat, pleasant venue with staff really wanting to make the event as nice as they possibly can make it. Both Paul and Jenna went beyond to help make this a wonderful event. I highly recommend the Lynnwood Convention Center." ~ Private Party

"Where do I begin? With almost 800 in attendance it was critical that our associates were served meals and refreshments in a timely fashion with friendly service. Your team exceeded expectations on this. Kristina Vanouy and Paul Beckwith were outstanding representatives to work with. They were exceedingly attentive and available. They delivered on all expectations. There are so many positive things I want to share about my experience with your team but a comment my President mentioned to me sums it up best - - I have never been to a more well put together, planned and executed meeting in my career!"
