Microsoft Ignites in Seattle

By Amanda Christensen

Last October, Microsoft welcomed over 3,500 attendees to the Seattle Convention Center’s Arch building for the company’s first in-person flagship event since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. The annual conference, Microsoft Ignite, brings together the world’s top internet technology professionals and developers for live forums, demonstrations, and networking opportunities.

“The Seattle Convention Center rose to the occasion and was filled with energy, reimagined space usage, and celebration,” says Kelly Saling, senior vice president and chief sales officer of Visit Seattle, in a prepared statement. 

Beyond the convention center, over 300,000 people registered to join Microsoft Ignite’s remote digital component, along with thousands participating at five additional in-person events around the world.
