Why Washington, D.C.?
 
Washington, D.C. is one of the world’s most talked-about destinations and attracts nearly 18 million visitors from around the globe each year. With a huge assortment of attractions, from monuments and memorials on the National Mall to the Library of Congress and the National Gallery of Art to the breathtaking museums like the Smithsonian Institution, it’s no wonder Washington, D.C. was named the #1 US destination in 2011 by Travel and Leisure. In 2014, the Worldwide Partner Conference takes place in this accommodating, cosmopolitan city at the centrally-located Walter E. Washington Convention Center (WEWCC).
