On-Site Locations & Information

Welcome to DDW

Below is general information on where to find key DDW locations within the convention center. For the most current information and to locate maps, please download the DDW Mobile App.

Registration and Materials

Registration is open in Hall D of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center (WCC). The hours are noon through 8 p.m. today, 7 a.m–6 p.m. Saturday through Monday, and 7 a.m–4 p.m. Tuesday. If you’ve already received your badge in the mail before the meeting (it was in a yellow envelope) — you don’t need to go to the main registration area. Take the entire envelope containing your badge and all of your tickets to one of the materials pick-up areas, located in Hall D and in select DDW hotels (Grand Hyatt Washington, Marriott Marquis Washington D.C. or Renaissance Washington D.C. Downtown Hotel). Satellite pick up is strongly encouraged.

If you didn’t receive your badge in the mail prior to the meeting, or if you need to have a change or correction made, please go to Registration in Hall D.
