City Business Casual

The Office of Economic Development and the City of Seattle are excited to connect directly with the local business community via our City Business Casual series. These informal gatherings provide the Seattle business community with regular, direct access to business-focused city officials, including influential city leaders and key department heads and representatives.

No pre-registration for City Business Casual is necessary. The sessions do not include a formal program, but Office of Economic Development staff will actively make introductions and connections. Business owners and advocates will also have a chance to ask questions, suggest ideas, and troubleshoot specific issues in an informal and relaxed setting.

Currently, no 2014 Casuals have been planned.

Close collaboration and information exchange are essential for Seattle businesses to build and grow. City Business Casual is a great way to facilitate growth in Seattle's thriving local business community.
