Meetings Mean Progress

People standing
All over the world – and right here in Washington, DC - meetings and conventions are essential elements in advancing business, academic and professional development.

At a global level, they support innovation, knowledge exchange and the creation of professional networks while fostering greater scientific, economic and cultural understanding. For the local community, they build destination profile and prestige, attract new visitor spending and provide a platform for interaction with the international community.

Meetings and conventions mean progress, wherever they are taking place. And in Washington, DC, with so many institutions and organizations of global importance, that reality takes on a whole new meaning.
