5 Things

1. All Aboard
Light rail is just around the corner, and so is the explosive growth in development, population, and economic activity that comes with it. Learn all about Sound Transit’s vision-under construction for the Eastside at September’s Business Lunch with Sound Transit CEO, Peter Rogoff.
2. Root, Root, Root for the Home Team
September 27 | 7:10pm
Register by September 18, 2019
Join us as we bring together some of our Eastside Chambers of Commerce to watch the Mariners play the A’s. Good networking, good fun, good company, and great seats!
3. Robots and VR and 5G, Oh My
An old warehouse in Bellevue recently got a fresh coat of paint and a new T-Mobile sign and opened its doors as the company’s first device lab in the city. The lab will perform a variety of 5G related tests as T-Mobile continues to push forward in the implementation of new technologies.
4. Take a Back Road
Beginning Monday, September 9 and lasting through June 2020, part of 124th Ave NE will be closed to through traffic.
The closure is needed to build a bridge to allow for the East Link light rail vehicles to pass underneath. 
5. COSM Technology Summit
October 23-25 | Westin Bellevue
Early registration rates through September 6
COSM will bring together
top minds
in artificial intelligence, crypto, blockchain, internet architecture, and autonomous vehicles to examine the convergence (and future economic impacts) of these technologies.
