Washington, D.C.—On Tuesday, October 17, 2006, the Washington, DC Economic Partnership will hold its Annual Meeting Luncheon and DC Development Showcase at the Washington Convention Center.

Last year’s event drew nearly 1,000 people to the venue and this year 1,200 people are expected to attend. The WDCEP Annual Meeting is a celebration for the District’s economic renaissance and development dynamic. At the luncheon WDCEP will honor the best in the real estate community with an awards ceremony.

The Development Showcase, which is the only exhibition to celebrate development throughout the city, will precede the luncheon and awards. This popular showcase will feature approximately 65 exhibitors displaying projects currently under construction, planned and proposed throughout the District of Columbia’s eight wards. Projects on display will range from retail to residential and from mixed-use to office.

Another highlight of the Annual Meeting is the release the Economic Partnership’s 2006/2007 Development Activity Guide. Highlighting over 900 development projects in the District, this is a must have publication for those seeking to develop and to learn more about development in the District. The guide is a compendium of the city’s $41.1 billion in economic development since 2001 and successfully displays the District’s vigorous economic resurgence.
