SPOKANE, Wash.

The cost of coffee and Wi-Fi are two sometimes pricey add-ons that almost every meeting incurs. Visit Spokane is looking to entice planners by offering free coffee and Wi-Fi at the Spokane Convention Center.

“Times are changing rapidly in this modern world and it’s important for people to be connected,” said Rob Enriquez, VP of sales at Visit Spokane. “Coffee, especially here in the Northwest, is also important.”

Spokane's expanded 500,000-square-foot convention center is on the banks of the Spokane River downtown. Within walking distance of the convention center, which is connected to two hotels, there are 3,500 downtown guest rooms. Spokane's downtown core also features 80-plus restaurants.

Launched this February, the incentive requires groups to utilize 450+ room nights on peak, and the event must actualize by Dec. 31, 2019. More info is available at www.visitspokane.com/freecoffee.
