Our opening reception will create a big splash where DC meets its water. Fine food and drink will be yours to enjoy while spending time at District Pier at The Wharf, Washington’s newest and most exciting neighborhood. This remarkable, mile-long stretch along the Potomac River includes restaurants, retailers, residences, and businesses – all complemented by monumental views and a vibrant culture. Hanging out on the pier, you will have unparalleled networking opportunities with other conference attendees, and you will be dazzled by sunset on the water and abundant waterside style. When the reception concludes, you can take a stroll along the piers, enjoy one of a collection of DC’s hottest new restaurants, or catch a show at one of the Wharf’s outstanding music venues.
