Renton. Ahead of the Curve.

Renton is not only a great community in which to live, work, learn, and play, it is also an amazing place in which to shop, dine, visit, and do just about anything else! Watch our videos to see why.

Renton has created an environment that supports business development while enhancing quality of life. Community leaders nurture entrepreneurial spirit and foster successful partnerships. Bold economic plans have diversified the City’s employment base and strategically positioned Renton for the future. For these reasons and many more, Renton is the center of opportunity in the Puget Sound region where businesses and families thrive. 

These videos were produced by the Renton Community Marketing Campaign, a partnership between the City of Renton, the Renton School District, Renton Technical College, Valley Medical Center, and Renton Chamber of Commerce.  The videos have three main purposes: 1) to recruit new businesses to locate in Renton, 2) to attract high quality employees to work for the wide range of public and private employers in the city, and 3) to showcase the community as a great place to visit, live, and raise a family.  They will be shared directly with real estate developers, business executives, site selectors, and office and residential real estate brokers, as well as the human resources departments of employers throughout the city.  Private firms can also use them for their own marketing or employee recruitment purposes.


“Renton has experienced a huge amount of growth in recent years.  These videos allow us to share this exciting transformation with a larger audience in a very compelling way”.  Mayor Denis Law
