Washington may be the oldest, largest and busiest global hub of associations working in different professions, trades and social endeavours. Associations are at the heart of city strategy, both in hosting meetings in the capital, and in locating headquarters there. In this video feature, Destination DC explains how change is being made through business events.
A key hub for global associations, Washington has identified the destination’s intellectual capital as lying in seven core sectors. Meetings bids are connected to large organisations working in the region across those sectors. Access to these organisations and to government are a big part of the destination’s offering.
Contributing to this video are Melissa Riley, Vice president of Convention Sales and Services, and Elliott Ferguson, President and CEO, both of Destination DC.
