Events DC History in the making
Whether its purpose is to engage, excite, or entertain, an event in Washington, D.C., is like no other. Events DC, the official convention and sports authority for the District of Columbia, delivers premier event services and venues across the destination. Building off of the energy of the nation’s capital, Events DC creates unforgettable attendee experiences for events of all kinds, from citywide conven- tions to corporate meetings, sporting events, festivals, and special events. Events DC also oversees multiple venues in the District, including the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and the recently reopened Carnegie Library.

Te Beaux- Arts-style building opened in 1903 aſter Andrew Carnegie commissioned funds for a central public library in D.C., and as of this past February, the historic landmark operates as a meeting and event space immediately across the street from the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. “Te Carnegie Library is one of Washington, D.C.’s historic
treasures, and by reopening its doors, this history will come alive once again,” said Gregory A. O’Dell, president and chief
executive officer of Events DC. “Since we completed the ren- ovations, we’ve seen firsthand a high demand for this spe- cial events venue.” “Carnegie Library’s unique spaces and historical signifi-
cance served as the perfect fit for our annual industry ‘aſter- party’ event,” said Dan Sherman, president and chief execu- tive officer of the Hospitality Industry Professionals network, which held one of the first events in the newly renovated Library. “Events DC delivered first-class service and an unfor- gettable experience.” In addition, Events DC manages the Stadium–Armory
