Join Button and Content Strategy Seattle to kick off your Button experience!

This is a chance to mingle with fellow Button attendees as well as local Seattle content strategists and designers. Speakers like Jonathon Colman, Torrey Podmajersky, Scott Kubie, David Thomas, Andy Welfle, Michael Metts, will be there to meet the community.

Note: You do not have to be registered for the conference to attend!

We'll have books to give away, a few of the speakers will preview their talks, and we'll generally just chill over drinks and light nosh.

To help cover our costs, we are charging a small admission of $5. If you'd like to attend but finances prevent you, please contact us at

We will be checking RSVPs at the door and our venue requires proof of Covid vaccination submitted in advance of the event. The process is quick and easy, see details below.

We appreciate your assistance in keeping our party — and the conference — safe and healthy!

Location details available upon RSVP.

Looking forward to seeing you there.
