For the past five years, business, labor, community organization and government leaders have attended the annual Maritime Industry Economic Forecast Breakfast. The breakfast provides a tremendous opportunity to address the opportunities and challenges facing the region’s maritime and fishing industries. It also serves to showcase the important contribution of the King County maritime and fishing industries to the region’s economy and quality of life.
In 2017, more than 300 industry leaders attend the breakfast, which was held during Pacific Marine Expo at the CenturyLink Field Events Center.
