Seattle Interactive Conference Set for October 15-16, Dedicated to “Makers,” Those Defining the Digital Landscape

Organizers of the fourth-annual Seattle Interactive Conference (www.seattleinteractive.com) today announced that SIC 2014 will be held October 15-16, featuring a jam-packed combination of presentations, structured networking events, a company exhibition Hub and an after-hours party. Dedicated to the theme of “Makers,” the two-day event is set for The Conference Center of the Washington State Convention Center in downtown Seattle. Planners expect more than 4,000 attendees from throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond.

Makers are thought-leaders who drive inspiration and change with the next big idea, as well as companies that successfully cultivate innovation and then translate it into commerce. What can everyone learn from their experiences integrating new ideas and visions? Are today’s companies truly positioned to embrace change? What are the critical new tools at-hand, both for individuals and organizations?
