This year’s AAJA National Convention in Washington D.C. is packed full of hands-on workshops, seminars and networking opportunities.
And TODAY is your last chance to save $75 on the registration rate for the convention, Aug. 13-16.
And if you need more reasons to go, convention co-chairs Seung Min Kim and Sherri Ly share a few of the many things you can do while you’re in the nation’s capitol:
A great convention hotel located right in the heart of downtown Washington, D.C. The Renaissance Marriott is a top-of-the-line hotel with spacious and comfortable rooms, superb workout facilities and great bars to unwind with a drink after a long day.
When you can break away from programming and networking, leave the hotel and enjoy all that D.C. has to offer. Walk just a couple of blocks to Chinatown and Penn Quarter – home to some of the best restaurants in D.C. Some of our favorites are restaurants run by famed restaurateur Jose Andres, like Jaleo (Spanish tapas) and Zaytinya (Mediterraean). Right across the street is the brand-new CityCenterDC – a new complex with luxury shopping including Kate Spade and Burberry. And the hotel is just a short walking distance from the National Mall, surrounded by the best museums in the country (all free!).
And of course, it’s a chance to reconnect with all your AAJA friends from across the world.
