Why Seattle 4?


Of thousands of Rotary clubs in the world today, Seattle was number four, and we’ve been growing ever since. It’s a legacy that our business and community leaders take seriously, gathering weekly to manifest the Rotarian ideals of friendship, fellowship, and service. As one of the world’s largest Rotary clubs, we can and do make big things happen in our local and global communities. 

Over the decades, Rotary Club of Seattle has provided a forum for prominent people from business, civic, and academia in the United States and around the world. They have found the club to be an excellent venue to present their views on topical issues and encourage support for their programs and causes.

Why eSports Video Game Revenue Will Top $111 Billion 

Why was Key Arena filled with thousands of video gamers a week ago?? Hear Bryce Blum, co-founder @ IME Law, a cutting-edge media and entertainment firm in Seattle delve into the largest phenomenon that you've probably never heard of: the competitive video game industry, known as esports.

Esports events – like the one at Key Arena - are already selling out stadiums, garnering online viewership numbers that rival traditional sports audiences, and driving sponsorship dollars of major brands such as Coca Cola, Geico and Nissan. Bryce will provide an overview of the size and scope of this emerging industry, identify business trends, and discuss Seattle's unique, powerful role in gaming and esports.

After Party on Thursday, August 25th at the Triple Door (215 Union St.) from 5:00-7:00 pm​.
