About Washington State Convention Center Public Facilities District
In 1982, with the support of the Washington State legislature, a nonprofit corporation was established to design, construct, promote and operate the Washington State Convention Center (WSCC). Since its first event on June 18, 1988, WSCC has operated to provide economic and civic benefits for the people of Washington State.
In 2010, the state Legislature enacted Substitute Senate Bill 6889, which authorized King County to create a public facilities district to acquire, own and operate a convention center transferred from a public nonprofit corporation. On July 30, 2010, the Washington State Convention Center Public Facilities District (the District) was officially formed by King County Ordinance 16883 following approval by the King County Council.
In 2022, WSCC changed its business name to Seattle Convention Center. Read more at www.SeattleConventionCenter.com.
