This was our second year attending the NWSPR Conference in Seattle. Thursday was a gorgeous day, and I’m so glad I was able to see the fall colors coming through the beautiful trees up there.
Thursday I joined a great vendor of LocumsMart, Icon Medical Network, for a patio and sunset dinner on the 21st floor of Daniels Broiler. I highly recommend checking that place out, gorgeous views and great food. Later that evening, many of us hung out and networked a bit.
Friday was a great start to the conference. Many amazing speakers, and the attendees were really active in talking with the exhibitors, which is always much appreciated. The evening reception was fun people and conversations!
I was able to sneak off into Downtown Seattle and have dinner at Ivar’s Salmon House on the water. I highly recommend this place! Beautiful scenes of the Seattle Downtown and great for watching the large yachts pass by.
Saturday looked a little more like I thought Seattle would: cloudy, rainy and a little smokey in the air. But I was still able to venture out to Alkis’ Beach, visited at Salty’s on the Water, the original Starbucks and the Pike Place Market. Wow! The culture there and the fish throwing is just like you see on the movies….and I love Starbucks — but not enough to stand in that line!
Congratulations to Kelly Ulrich for winning the $100 gift certificate, and great job again Doug Lewis for all of your efforts in putting the NWSPR together! We are looking forward to next year…and hoping it’s in Portland, OR (selfish reasons because I’ve never been!).
