SRS 58th Annual Meeting



Seattle is located on the Puget Sound in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and is Washington’s largest city. Seattle is home to a large tech industry, and the futuristic Space Needle, a 1962 World’s Fair legacy, its most iconic landmark.


Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) is the main airport in Seattle. SEA is located approximately 15 miles to Hyatt Regency Seattle (808 Howell Street).

Taxis or rideshares (Uber, Lyft) are commonly used and available at the airport.

The Link Light Rail is also available from the airport to downtown (Westlake Station). Westlake Station is two (2) blocks northeast of the hotel.


To enter the United States, international travelers are required to have a valid passport. A visa is required for the citizens of countries that do not have visa-exempt agreements with the U.S.

Please visit the U.S. government travel site, to confirm if you would require a visa in entering the U.S.

Please contact your local United States Consulate to learn more about visa acquisition. Please note, SRS is unable to submit a visa application on the registrant’s behalf. The decision to grant visas is at the sole discretion of the embassy/consulate. The meeting organizers cannot change the decision of the governmental agency should your application be denied.

Advance travel planning and early visa application are important. It is recommended that you apply early for your visa.
