The CROI 2017 will be held at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, Washington. The Convention Center is located right in the heart of downtown Seattle, within easy walking distance of the city’s best shops, sights, hotels, and restaurants.

It is blocks away from the famous Pike Place Market and a short rail ride to Pioneer Square or Century link field. It is a 5-minute walk to the Westlake Center, a 4-story, glass-enclosed shopping mall, which contains a food court, clothing stores, personal services, and shopping.
