Three Ways to Create a Unique Learning Experience:

1. The National’s Vast Amount & Variety of Space enables Private, Customized Meetings. Depending on the size of a meeting, The National’s vast gathering space enables unique, individualized meeting space with conference rooms, outdoor space and rooms with natural light — exclusively available to an individual meeting. With 265,000 sq. ft. of meeting and event space, offering 250 purpose-built conference rooms, breakout rooms and general session rooms, The National’s flexibility is unsurpassed. Recently, The National created small, intimate meeting spaces to complement larger traditional meeting spaces: The Center’s outdoor courtyard with Pergola and fire pits are used almost daily for meetings, along with a comfortable Living Room and a “Speakeasy” room aptly named The National Secret.

2. Create a Hyper-Local Food Experience. The National focuses on hyper-local farm-to-table cuisine incorporating over 60 local products, including wines from Loudoun County, Virginia, to the daily menus that reflect robust partnerships with local farmers, such as CEA Farms, which has been farming in Loudoun County since 1797. CEA Farms provides all the tomatoes, lettuces and specialty greens for The National’s daily menus, and a hot dog so flavorful it has been named the “Farmer Dog”. Also, The National is the only conference center with a Chief Wine Officer on staff – Mary Watson-DeLauder. Her unique Herb & Wine tastings make for a great and flavorful teambuilding event.

3. Develop a Memorable Learning Experience with Teambuilding. Experiential learning is an exceptional method to create memorable group experiences with high recall. The Challenge Course at The National includes action-based learning components such as the high ropes course and other elements designed for problem solving and leadership development. The course features nine unique elements strategically placed within the 65-acre campus and each element provides multiple challenges aligned with a meeting’s program objectives.

In addition to the Challenge Course, The National has created three function rooms, each with an individual theme, to be used for teambuilding, communication exercises or facilitated workshops. The Summer Camp, The Color Room and The Nerf Challenge are designed and outfitted with décor, lighting and music, along with food and beverage breaks that complement the themes. Planners can book these rooms for half day, full day or even just for a few hours. Additional cost based on meeting programming and facilitators.

With its reputation as an outstanding member of IACC, The National has hosted thousands of learning and training meetings and conferences over the years and has perfected the meeting experience.
