Benefits of Meeting in Washington, DC (Meeting Justification)

INTA is excited to move the Leadership Meeting this year to an east coast urban venue, and Washington, DC, is the best of the best!

Here are some benefits of holding the Leadership Meeting in Washington, DC:
  • Washington, DC, is a major business and travel hub with direct flights from cities across the world and is easily accessible for the majority of registrants.
  • Washington, DC, offers competitive travel and hotel prices.
  • Washington’s numerous dining venues offer vast opportunities for client meetings and networking.  
  • East coast cities, including Washington, DC, are home to many brand owners and law firms and provide Leadership Meeting attendees the opportunity to meet with local colleagues and/or clients, maximizing their time outside the meeting and therefore justifying cost and travel time.
  • Home of U.S. federal government offices, Washington, DC, provides the unique opportunity for registrants to meet with government representatives and demonstrate the value of IP and the strength of the Association to the new administration.
