For meeting planners seeking a dramatic touch, the Mead Center is the perfect Washington, D.C. destination for your next conference, trade show or meeting.

Get to work, and get inspired, in the sunlight-washed Molly Smith Study – this flexible, creative space will push the agenda “outside the box” for your next brain-storming session, board meeting or lecture. The Kogod Cradle, equipped with state-of-the-art sound, lighting and projection equipment, is an elegant setting for intimate conferences of 200 or less. Or, utilize the entire Mead Center for your next trade show or exposition – our spacious lobbies can accommodate up to 50 booths, with room to spare for dining and networking on the Café level.

Our full-service Events Team can provide podiums, microphones, screens and projectors, flatscreen monitors, stages, and more! Request more information by filling out the online RFP.
