National Innovation Summit and Showcase

Summit Venue

Just minutes outside of Washington, DC, the Gaylord National Hotel & Convention Center offers visitors to the Capital region a convenient and professional business environment.

Discover this first-class destination with fun for everyone, including fine dining and casual restaurants, unique shopping experiences, an indoor pool, and a 20,000-square-foot spa and fitness center. And for late-night excitement, an express elevator speeds you to the two-story rooftop Pose Ultra Lounge.

Whether you are coming to the Washington DC area for business or pleasure—or even a combination of both—Gaylord National is the perfect place to stay in order to enjoy the region's rich cultural and business destinations. Located in National Harbor, Maryland in Prince George's County, Gaylord National offers its guests convenient access to Washington, DC with an hourly shuttle service, water taxi to Old Town Alexandria, and shuttle service to Ronald Reagan National Airport.

TechConnect has learned that a variety of travel companies are contacting our attendees and exhibitors to assist with hotel reservations in the Washington DC area for the National Innovation Summit & Showcase and National SBIR Conference. These companies ARE NOT affiliated with TechConnect in any capacity. If you are contacted by travel booking agencies, we strongly urge you not to utilize their services.
