#HRUSeattle will highlight the practical knowledge about cases of different HR and Recruitment Technologies. We will discuss the impact of Technology on various HR and Recruitment fields such as Training, Data Storage and Retrieval, Performance Management and much more.

The Factory Luxe is a sumptuous event space with a rich Seattle history. We chose the name The Factory Luxe because it represents the unique dual nature of the place. The outside is an intriguing reminder of an industrial by-gone era while the inside is cozy and luxurious. The combination makes for an exciting space to meet, celebrate and have a good time! The Factory Luxe is 2 miles south of downtown and 2 miles north of Georgetown, an especially unique neighborhood with one-of-a-kind restaurants, bars, galleries, shops, saloons, and cafes. The area is diverse and friendly, consisting largely of musicians, bohemians, artists, blue-collar workers and young professionals.
