It continues to flourish because of its drive and dedication to developing the creative community and collaboration with local entities. Offering its many services, it has gained traction, as the best business to contact to for the true DC experience. The team led Events DC through tough times, such as the global pandemic, by sticking with the company. Gates adds, “Like the rest of the hospitality industry and the world, we faced a complete shutdown of our venues and spaces. However, we used this opportunity to create a virtual platform called GATHER by Events DC, which delivers a fully integrated, experiential platform that provides a diverse array of entertainment and resources. Through livestream performances, virtual conferences, and content categories to fit every guest, GATHER redefines how to convene audiences and provides meaningful and memorable experiences.” GATHER by Events DC won a Capital Emmy in 2022 for its Embassy Chef Challenge and has been nominated for many others. Its collection of accolades are tremendous examples of Events DC’s value and commitment to service. This innovative programme offers “on-demand event programming from the world of sports, entertainment, culture, hospitality, and much more.” The Walter E. Washington Convention Center won a Gold Stella Award, GBAC Star Accreditation, WELL Health-Safety Rating, and was recognized as EXHIBITOR Magazine’s Centers of Excellence 2021. Its venue, DC Armory has been awarded with LUXlife’s Events Venue of the Year – Washington, DC. As a GBAC STAR™ Facility, DC Armory demonstrates its ongoing dedication to safety protocols and cleaning procedures that will continue to instill trust and confidence in customers as they look to book their events. It is a 70,000-square-foot exhibition space which has a seating capacity of 10,000 people, and it is home to sports and theatre events that leave us in awe. As a “customizable classic,” this landmark dome has hosted “extraordinary events like inaugural galas, e-sport tournaments, the Title IX Basketball Classic, DC Rollergirls roller derby league, and, yep, actual circuses.” We recognize its magnificent presence, and Events DC’s team efforts to create amazing experiences, in our Travel and Tourism Awards 2023, and we can’t wait to see what the company does next. We are sure to see Events DC excel and expand as it continues to cultivate experiences that must not be missed.
