Washington Convention Center

Washington, DC’s first convention center was erected in 1974, just two blocks from the site of the stunningly beautiful new Washington Convention Center. Located in the heart of Washington, the facility is ushering in unparalleled residential and commercial development. The new Washington Convention Center is the primary catalyst for the renaissance of nearby historic communities and a new, vibrant, living downtown district.

The sparkling new 2.3 million square foot convention center is now open for business. Located in the heart of the nation’s capital, we’re steps from historic museums, great restaurants and wonderful attractions.

In its first year of operation, the new Washington Convention Center garnered accolades such as being named Best New Convention Center by Meetings East Magazine and rave reviews from clients. The facility hosted nearly 1 million visitors and generated $426.5 million in delegate spending.
