The newest and hottest area in Bellevue is the Spring District. As the name implies, the growth within this section of Bellevue, east of downtown, is nothing short of spectacular. If you want to go to the edge of innovation, look no further than the Global Innovation Exchange, often referred to as GIX. GIX is the collaboration between Microsoft, the University of Washington, and Tsinghua University to bring the best minds from across the country and around the world to one place where invention is the name of the game. The best part is that the meeting space at GIX can accommodate up to 200 people and has some additional outdoor space. The inspiration you will find within the walls of GIX may well be the thing that sets your next great idea into motion.
