When do I get to eat out in Seattle?
Seattle is a gastronomic sensation, and we hope you can explore the best of what the city has to offer (especially in our Chinatown/International District neighborhoods, where we’ll be staying).
If you book a room at the Embassy Suites, your breakfast is included at the hotel. (Note: We will not be providing a separate breakfast for conference attendees who are not staying at the hotel.)
If you attend Thursday’s pre-training day and our conference, here’s what meals are covered and when you can explore other restaurants.
|Thursday||Covered by LION.||Explore the city!|
|Friday||Explore the city!||Explore the city!|
|Saturday||Covered by LION.||Covered by LION.|
So how much do you think all this will cost me?
Here’s some math we did for you.
|LION members||Non-LION members|
|Thursday training day ticket||$50||$75|
|Summit ticket||$100 (If you take advantage of our deal right now!)||$275|
|Hotel||$934.40 (4 nights at $199/night + tax)|
|Travel to/from hotel||$6 (roundtrip on light rail)|
|Meals||$55 (2 lunches at $15/lunch and 1 dinners at $25/dinner)|
Plus, travel. For airfare, our research shows from major cities this could range from $175 to $400.
That means if you’re a member of LION, you could attend three days of learning, networking and exploring a beautiful West Coast city for anywhere between $1,320 to $1,545.
If you aren’t a LION member, you could attend for anywhere between $1,520.40 to $1,745.40.
