Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum | Springfield, Illinois | Get a Quote
Our first presidential venue recommendation also happens to be the 2022 Planner’s Choice Awards winner for Small Market Venue. Located in Abraham Lincoln’s hometown of Springfield, IL, Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum is dedicated to telling Lincoln’s great American story. Offering seven venues for both daytime and evening events, planners will have the unique opportunity to book this venue as the backdrop for a variety of events, like meetings, trainings, seminars, conferences, receptions, banquets, and dinners.
The Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center is a premier venue in D.C. for hosting influential conferences, events, and a powerful forum for international trade and cultural promotion. Just steps away from the White House and named after the 40th president of the United States, planners love the flexibility of this venue that houses an amphitheater, an atrium, a banquet hall, and a variety of other flexible breakout rooms.
Located on a picturesque hilltop on the grounds of the historic Soldiers’ Home, President Lincoln’s Cottage offers a unique and inspiring setting for special events. During the Civil War, the 16th president used this home-turned-venue for important meetings, entertaining, and developing nation-changing documents such as the Emancipation Proclamation. Corporate social events, parties, galas, and meetings are the perfect event types that can be hosted at this national treasure.
Washington & Jefferson College | Washington, Pennsylvania | Get a Quote
Washington, Pennsylvania, just outside of Pittsburgh, is a city named after George Washington, is home to the prestigious campus of Washington & Jefferson College. This historic college is one of the oldest in the U.S. and has been visited by fifteen U.S. Presidents since it was established. This college also offers ample, flexible space to host productive events like meetings, trainings, company retreats, presentations, and educational programming.
Our last recommendation for presidential venues is none other than The National Archives Museum in Washington, D.C. The National Archives Museum’s event spaces – the Rotunda Galleries, Archivist’s Reception Room, Visitor Orientation Plaza, William G. McGowan Theater, and Presidential Conference Center – are ideally suited for events ranging from elegant receptions and gala dinners to board meetings, lectures, film screenings, and corporate events. Planners may even choose to book unique experiences throughout your event like exploring the Rotunda for the Charters of Freedom – the permanent home of the original Declaration of Independence, U.S. Constitution, and Bill of Rights. It’s no wonder this venue is the 2022 Planner’s Choice for Formal Events!
