Exclusive Venues Events held at one of DC's many exceptional venues are guaranteed to make your delegates feel like dignitaries. This is especially true when iconic landmarks are the backdrop—views of the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, Pentagon and Air Force Memorial, to name a few, are in sight from the Potomac View Terrace, located at the American Pharmacists Association's headquarters on the National Mall. The historic Washington National Cathedral, site of state funerals, prayer services for presidential inaugurations and the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s last Sunday sermon, offers stunning options for unforgettable receptions. The nave is an impressive space with beautiful stained glass and exquisite carvings, and docents can be on hand to highlight the architectural and historical significance. Engaging Experts As a knowledge hub and leader in key industries, from biotech and pharma to technology and government advocacy, programs are enhanced by unrivalled access to engaging content from DC's expert speakers and policy makers. Local universities—such as Georgetown, Howard and Gallaudet—offer custom executive courses on actionable topics such as entrepreneurial mindset, diversity of thought and inclusive innovation. The Spy Speaker Series at the International Spy Museum—the world's only museum dedicated to furthering awareness of intelligence and espionage—delivers insider intel from former intelligence officers. Speakers like Sandy Grimes, a 26-year veteran of the CIA's Clandestine Service, can share her instrumental role in uncovering the actions of former CIA agent and infamous Soviet spy, Aldrich Ames. The museum's event spaces include a rooftop terrace and a ballroom with sweeping views from the U.S. Capitol to the Potomac River.
