What an incredible Maritime Economic Forecast Breakfast at Pacific Marine Expo. Awesome to have the family back together for an in-person event, with more than 220 industry leaders attending with the event following Lumen Field health and safety standards!
For the past nine 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.
