Event Options

In-Person Events – The National Press Club has returned to hosting full-capacity business and social events in the heart of downtown Washington, DC, in alignment with the latest guidelines provided by the DC Mayor and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The safety of our guests, clients and staff continues to be our top priority. Our staff have been fully vaccinated, and we are continuing best practices to provide a healthy and safe environment to host your events. A detailed summary of these practices is available

Hybrid Events – Expand the reach and impact of your in-person event by incorporating a live webcast or interactive online experience. Not only does this help you reach a broader audience geographically, but it gives your attendees the flexibility to engage and participate in your event at their own safety comfort level. Hybrid events are the best of both worlds and allow you to maximize your audience.

Fully Virtual Events – Through our multimedia production services unit and interactive virtual events platform, we can produce a professional online event to help you reach audiences around the globe for any type of event or program; educational seminars, media briefings, interviews, panel discussions, awards programs and more. These professional productions can include multiple programs and speakers (remote or in-studio), with video/graphic inserts, lower thirds, interactive polling and more that can be streamed to your website, YouTube channel, Facebook page, Twitter account or any combination of these.
