I can’t imagine a more professional, attentive, responsive, creative DMC! SH Worldwide is the cream of the crop. These are times of extreme budgeting, but we still wanted to present wonderful events for our members. It was not an easy task, however your team was so creative. They stood up to the task of getting us exactly what we wanted (sometimes more than we expected) at exactly the right price.

The team at SHW is exceptional - the depth and breadth of their abilities are unmatched. Whether it’s the largest local software company’s annual CEO Summit or a global association’s Seattle convention, this team behind the scenes makes things happen. Hands down one of the best event and destination management teams anywhere.

Tom NorwalkFormer President & CEO, Visit Seattle

You and your team were such a delight to work with. The ground transportation ran so smoothly and the dine arounds went great! And, as our National Sales Director said, ‘The Space Needle event was a home-run!!’ Thank you so much for making me look good.

Jennifer OakleyMeeting Manager, Bayer Healthcare

Thank you for your amazing efforts which contributed to the success of the National Governor’s Association Annual Meeting. It was a phenomenal experience. The visiting governors, their families and other meeting attendees were extremely impressed. It was a wonderful opportunity to showcase Seattle, the beauty of Washington State and the warmth and hospitality of our people. We couldn’t have done it without you.

Destination Management

SEATTLE INSIDER

“Welcoming clients and planners who have never been to Seattle before is one of my favorite parts about my job. From the iconic Space Needle to an exclusive wine tasting experience in Woodinville, I love to pack site visits with gems that capture the essence and spirit of our great city!”

Carol Riddle, Senior National Account Director

“As a self-proclaimed foodie, I love to share Seattle’s dynamic food scene with visitors to our beautiful city. The bounty of the Northwest’s land and sea takes center stage at an incredible mix of both laid back and fine dining restaurants. Beyond the cuisine, many of Seattle’s unique venues boast breathtaking views of water, mountains and the city.”

PORTLAND INSIDER

“One of my favorite places to visit is Hawthorn Asylum, a food truck pod located in Southeast Portland. This quirky spot features a vast array of cuisines from vegan to Egyptian – plus a 40-tap beer hall. There are so many options to satisfy even the most discerning palates.”

Heather Huey, CMP, Senior Program & Event Manager 

“Portland has a really strong hotel scene. From historic properties with vintage charm to 5-star, luxury accommodations, there are so many options to find the right hotel at your preferred budget.”

Michelle Morin, Site Sourcing & Housing Manager
