The Forum meets six times a year, typically on the fourth Wednesday of January, March, May, July, September, and November from 2:30 – 4:30 p.m. Meetings are hybrid: we meet in person or you may attend virtually on MS Teams.

The meeting will be held at the Port of Seattle Conference Center, located inside the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, pre-security and on the mezzanine level at the south end of the airport above Checkpoint #1. Boarding passes are not required to access the facility. The Port offers complimentary parking validations for Conference Center guests who utilize the airport parking garage, on the day of their event. Please park in General Parking (floors 2,3,5-8) in the airport garage. Parking validations are only valid in General Parking, and your parking will not be validated if you park on Terminal Direct (floor 4), as the pricing is different. Park in General Parking (floors 3, 5-8) at the South end of the Airport Garage near the yellow or green elevators (rows N-U). Walk across skybridge #1, between the yellow and green elevator banks, to the Main Terminal. Take the escalator or elevator up to the Ticketing Level. The stairs and elevator to the Mezzanine Level are directly behind the International ticketing counters. Enter the reception area through the double glass doors on the left. *Parking validations are valid in General Parking for the duration of the event or meeting. Your parking may not be validated if you choose to park in Terminal Direct (floor 4).*
