Washington, DC, the capital of the United States, is one of the world’s cultural, government and historic epicenters. A renowned tourist destination, the city boasts world-class museums, art galleries, monuments, and historical sites.
You’ll have a special opportunity to explore the famous Air and Space Museum, as it is the site of this year’s Conference Banquet. But you may want to make room in your travel schedule to visit other popular DC landmarks, especially on Wednesday afternoon, which will be free of sessions. For example, admission to the Smithsonian Museums—over 19 museums and galleries—is free and includes exhibits ranging from a 3.5 billion-year-old fossil to the Apollo lunar landing module.
Other leading DC attractions include: the national monuments and memorials, such as the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial ; the White House and the Capitol; Georgetown, a shopping and dining paradise located on DC’s historic waterfront; live theatrical productions at the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts; and so much more.
The unique blend of architecture, history and cultural diversity adds up to one ideal conference and vacation destination. So save the dates, September 17–22, and plan to attend ICSCRM 2017 in Washington, DC!
