District of Columbia

Few locations hold more historical significance to the United States than the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C. Both domestically and globally, groups choose D.C. for its intellectual capital; its unique and historic venues; the fact that it’s headquarters for not only the U.S. government, but many leading organizations and associations; and its easy access for attendees from the U.S. and around the world. 

Washington, D.C. is often on the cutting edge, too. The city claims to have more LEED-certified buildings than any other city in the U.S. and is the first LEED-Platinum city in the world. In addition to being a leader on sustainability, Destination DC, the DMO, has led the charge on conversations around diversity, equity and inclusion, and is committed to helping conferences and events drive social change.
