2017 NWRD is in Seattle -- Stay! Get to know the area
Fill your head with knowledge at the Conference, then extend your stay to enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

Talaris Conference Center is located just three miles from downtown Seattle. It's near the University District, which stretches from Ravenna to Portage Bay, and from I-5 to Lake Washington. 


Hopping on public transportation can get you to Seattle's most popular tourist destinations. Visit Pike Place Market, one of the oldest, continually-operated, public farmers' markets in the United States.

Or experience Seattle's symbolic Space Needle, a major landmark of the Pacific Northwest.

University of Washington & University Village

NWRD is being held at Talaris Conference Center, blocks away from the University of Washington’s gorgeous campus, with great shopping and food nearby at University Village.

Burke-Gilman Trail

Right across the street is the Burke-Gilman Trail, a favorite paved path stretching through 14 miles of North Seattle where locals ride, run or stroll around.  Bikes are also available from Talaris on a first-come first-serve basis.
