    "A look behind the scenes"

    Ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes of a venue or meeting space?

    Tin Can Alley will show us through presentations as well as a walk-through of the facility where you will learn how this private meeting space operates and brings everything together to make your event the best they can be.   From the RFP process through clean up. We will discuss it all and you will have the opportunity to ask questions in this interactive presentation.

    PJ Hummel and Company’s World Headquarters is a repurposed century-old factory located in the transportation hub of Tacoma known as the Dome District. The venue, Tin Can Alley, is a facility for human connectivity as well as celebration of art, culture, tourism and business. Constructed in 1919 as a factory to house Tacoma Can Company, the unique building  features vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, and a delightful combination of contemporary and rustic accents laced throughout.
