This past June 2012, We had the pleasure of attending the International Fancy Food Show at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. This is one of the nicer/modern convention centers in the U.S.A.... Very well planned, and very helpful staff. Great Location, Too! The meeting rooms were very clean & comfortable, as well as the both show floors. The rest rooms were also clean and top notch! While it was quite warm, with a mild heatwave 90'+, the Air Conditioning inside the convention center was a delight. Overall a first class facility!

When traveling to Washington D.C. for a convention you will find the Center in a convenient location to public transportation and good eats. When you are hungry take a break from convention activities and get a sandwich at First Cup Cafe, corner of M and 9th street. Save money.

A free 2-day convention for families, teachers, anyone interested in STEM. Many exhibitors and presentors. Our family came home with lots of ideas and information. Recommended for 2013! Glad we brought our own food.

....going here was a pleasure.... large arenas ... other events going on but, this was the main one and the one I came for.

.................can be easily reached by Metro,

NBC4 Health and Fitness Expo 2012 19th Annual Jan 14 & 15

First let me say parking was not an issue. New to the area and not wanting to walk ,get lost or pay a ton of money I was able to park a few Blocks away for $7.00 all day. $20.00 if I wanted to park just a little closer but not by that much.


For parking areas try;

Lots of Booths ! A few of the Free Screening's were; Diabetes Screening, Blood Pressure, Kidney Disease Risk, Hearing. Free massage, very long line. Free Nutrition Counseling. Tons of Hand Outs for everything imaginable. Healthy Cooking Demo's ...Warning all though informative being in this area made you Hungry. Speaking which, Concessions on both sides of the event. Lots of stuff for the children too! Tennis, Wheelchair Basketball, Rock Climbing Wall, Throwing footballs and getting your picture taken behind a Redskins Life size sculpture with your head where the player's would be . That was just some of the many activities provided.

Meet the NBC4 Team.

Meet some of the "Biggest Loser's" from the T.V. Show.

I can literally say Health and Fitness was covered from A right down to Zumba!


it's all ready on my Calendar for next year.....

***** This was a FREE Event *****

.....if you plan on attending another type event check to confirm Free or FEE !

Great space for conventions and trade shows. It's located near the Chinatown area also -- good location for lunch/dinner.
