5 Reasons Why You Should Host a Member Event

Marketing Outlook

Sponsoring and hosting events is a major perk of Destination DC membership.

Hosting an event is a great way to make the most out of your Destination DC membership. We’ll bring the food, the hospitality community and the presenters, you’ll supply the venue and introduce yourself to a room brimming with great business contacts.

Considering that Destination DC hosts at least one event per month (and sometimes as many as three), there are ample opportunities to host. We encourage you to attend popular Destination DC-run meetings and events like Eggs with Elliott, Monthly Member Forums and Power Hours, and to see what they’re all about.

Take a look at all of these reasons why you should consider hosting a member event.

1 You can showcase your unique venue or business.
