Connect 2022 will be in the recently-opened Student Success Center at Bellevue College. This facility provides a modern event space with easy parking located in a dynamic and growing hub for companies in the region.
The layout of the event space will maximize the in-person experience, including high-visibility booths for sponsor and partner organizations, quiet areas for conversation, and high-traffic spaces for spontaneous interactions.
We are committed to minimizing the risk for event participants, and Covid-19 vaccination will be required to attend in person. We also closely follow local, state, and federal public health updates and are prepared to adapt if conditions change.
Thank you for your interest in Connect 2022. Unfortunately, we have decided to postpone the May 20th event until the fall. All registrants will receive a full refund. We worked hard to promote the event within the collaborating organizations and more broadly. Previously (pre-covid), this was a successful strategy -- we even reached capacity in our first year without a track record for the event. However, registration this year is far below what we believe is needed to provide a valuable experience. There are likely many reasons for this, and we will learn from the experience to better prepare for an event in the fall.
