The Northwest Event Show is the Butler Events 2019 Event Resource Guide come to life. The B&E Resource Guides have been the Puget Sound area event planner's go–to resource since 1993. The Northwest Event Show has been introducing planners and vendors, letting them meet face to face, since 1995. Since that first reception at the Paramount Theater, the NWES has grown to over 80,000 square feet of exhibit space and 190+ booths representing over 200 companies all offering their venues, products and services to YOU....the Seattle area event planner.

The show is intended for the event planning and hospitality industries and is not open to the general public. Attendees and exhibitors must wear name badges, so you can discuss business confidently. You'll know you're talking to someone who wants your business.
