We're bringing networking back!

Love NAIOPWA virtual events but miss the camaraderie of an in-person breakfast? Networking is back, with a new way to attend from the comfort of your home or office desk. Join us 30 minutes prior to the event for an exclusive networking opportunity! See below for more details. Click here for more information and frequently asked questions.

Alongside the evolution and growth of Seattle's tech industry is a less-flashy but no less significant scientific industry: the life sciences. The metro area is quickly emerging as a hub for life science innovation and its associated capital investments, talent attraction and employee retention. What are the special development needs around life sciences? How can Seattle and the region better support talent acquisition and retention? What are the opportunities for growth in the sector?

September’s panel discussion brings perspectives from across industries serving the field, including sector-focused developers, operating companies and research institutes. We’ll address specific challenges to development, design and construction, and recruiting for this industry—which ultimately provides support to the lives and health of people around the globe from right here in Seattle.

Speakers include: 

  • Leslie Alexandre, President & CEO, Life Science Washington (moderator)
  • Hart Cole, SVP, Strategic Marketing Director, Alexandria Real Estate Equities, Inc. 
  • Mark McCord-Amasis, VP Real Estate and Facilities, Seattle Genetics
  • Seth Thornton, Asst. Director of Facilities, Fred Hutch
