Venues to Relive History and Make New Memories

Venues to Relive History and Make New Memories

History repeats itself, in the best way possible, at non-traditional venues that have a very gilded past. While modern facilities are great for having all the frills, historic and cultural venues add another layer for meetings and events with a unique story to tell that can wow the crowd. Almost all of these established properties have also been upgraded with fresh furnishings and the latest technology to continue catering to business clientele while still keeping their charm.

Imagine meeting where presidents, royals, and heads of state have all convened. The National Press Club in Washington, D.C. provides that opportunity—since 1908 this business center has hosted every U.S. President as well as dignitaries and celebrities such as Nelson Mandela, Muhammad Ali, and Elizabeth Taylor. Because it’s an association for journalists, the property also features a 4th floor Broadcast Operations Center providing a full-service option for webcast and video conference solutions as well as video production capabilities.

Architecture aficionados will also enjoy the peaceful Wingspread Retreat in Racine, Wisconsin that takes its inspiration from the works of Frank Lloyd Wright as well as his philosophies of form, function, site, structure, timing and context to create an organic and dynamic meeting environment that is ripe for creating ideas and transforming them into solutions.
