From the Lincoln Memorial to the White House, our nation’s capital is an inspiring place to live and work. Arden’s experienced team of facilitators is here to share their meeting venue expertise with Washington, DC-based businesses seeking a local venue to host their next offsite meeting or corporate retreat.
The following three DC venues provide world-class, well-equipped and unique environments for game-changing meetings. Check them out below!
Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium
How about hosting your next corporate meeting within the elegant limestone walls of one of the most notable buildings within DC’s Federal Triangle? Rent the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium, a 1930s-built seven-story auditorium that faces Constitution Avenue and you can do just that.
Employing Indiana limestone, Deere Island Pink granite, gilded aluminum, and regal Roman columns, the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium is one of the strongest examples of the Classical Revival architectural style in DC today. And it’s as breathtaking on the inside as it is from the outside.
Grand staircases, limestone-finished walls, ornate gold detail, and marble floors set a precedence for productive discussions and raise the bar for special announcements. From the majestic lobby to the stunning Great Hall, the Mellon Auditorium can accommodate anywhere from 36 to 1,000 attendees.
Mansion on O Street
Both a museum and a historic spot for artists to stop, stay a while, and create, the Mansion on O Street is an extraordinary place to unite your team for a meeting that stimulates curiosity and creativity.
As a structure that’s dedicated to exploring and advancing the creative process, the mansion’s meeting rooms defy all things blah about run-of-the-mill meeting spaces. You have 12 conference rooms and expansive meeting galleries with accommodations of up to 300 available, each one bedecked in art and elegant furnishings. Everywhere you look has a story to tell.
For a fun team-building activity to augment your offsite session, participate in a treasure hunt through the mansion’s five interconnected houses that include over 100 rooms and more than 70 secret doors. Plus the mansion offers their own on-site event planners so you can be sure that everything is taken care of.
Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center
The Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center currently holds the title of the largest structure in Washington, DC. While it’s known as our country’s driving force behind the advancement of international trade and culture, what you may not know is that it offers over 65,000 square feet of executive meeting space that can be rented by the public.
From the Rotunda’s 28-foot domed ceilings and panoramic balcony that overlooks historic Pennsylvania Avenue to Woodrow Wilson Plaza’s 4-acre landscaped courtyard and regal outdoor sculpture garden, renting one of the facility’s standout spaces is the perfect option for small groups of your company’s leaders and larger company-wide trainings and functions.
Topnotch catering and supreme service plug into all bookings at center for a corporate meeting that’s focused on your goals over the logistics and details.
