The convention center is located over the Mount Vernon Square/Convention Center Metro stop on the Green and Yellow lines of the DC Metro, and only a few blocks from our convention hotel, the Grand Hyatt Washington (reserve rooms here).


Grand Hyatt Washington DC

We've partnered with the Grand Hyatt Washington to bring you luxury accommodations at a reasonable price for your stay during our conference.

The Grand Hyatt is only a few blocks from the DC Convention Center and adjacent to a wide variety of restaurants and night life in downtown DC.

Our convention rate for reservations can also be applied shortly before or after the conference, if you wish to stay longer and enjoy the Washington DC Metropolitan Area.

You can register for a room at our convention rate of $209/night here.

The Grand Hyatt Washington is one block from the Metro Center metro station, and three blocks from the Gallery Place/Chinatown metro station.

Traveling to the DC Metro Area

The Washington DC Area is serviced by three airports -- Reagan National (DCA), Dulles (IAD), and Thurgood Marshall Baltimore/Washington International (BWI). All currently have available transportation to downtown DC via public transportation, shuttles, or cab.

Washington DC is also serviced by Amtrak, VRE, and MARC train lines, which arrive in Union Station, a few metro stops or a short cab ride away from the convention center and the Grand Hyatt.

If you live in the DC Metropolitan area, we suggest taking Metro to the event. The convention center is located over the Mount Vernon Square/Convention Center Metro stop on the Green and Yellow lines of the DC Metro.


There are a total of five classrooms over two days or 10 training days available at the conference. Two classrooms hold 30 students and the other three have a capacity of 24 students. We are working to confirm our selected trainers so check back soon for some great classes!
