Amazon purchased the naming rights, but the arena name outlines their goal to be, “the most progressive, responsible, and sustainable arena in the world”.  The arena reopened in October of 2022 after undergoing a billion dollar remodel. Impressively, the arena is now exclusively by renewable energy.

In addition to sports and concert events, many people do not realize there are a vast number of separate event spaces for corporate and social events throughout the space including the Moet & Chandon Imperial Lounge, the Symetra Club, and the Space Needle Lounge.

These event spaces are perfect for small groups of a dozen, up to a few hundred as a pre or post-event gathering.

Location of Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle

The convenient location of Climate Pledge is perfect for DMC clients staying at Downtown Seattle hotels as well as local Seattle area companies looking for a new venue for meetings and events. It is located on the north end of Downtown Seattle in the Seattle Center.

The arena is walking distance to many Seattle landmarks. It’s close to the Space Needle, the Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP), and the Chihuly Garden and Glass to name a few.

Transportation is easy with plenty of room for chartered groups, taxi or ride-share vehicles, or even public transportation on the very unique Seattle Monorail.  Fun fact – the Seattle Monorail was featured on the May of 1962 cover of Life Magazine.
