About This Report
The "Federal Meeting Facilities" report identifies Federal agencies that have conference and meeting space for agencies' use. Conducting business and hosting or sponsoring conferences in space controlled by the Federal Government is one way to reduce travel and related costs. This report also provides the accommodation size and types of services available.
The actual reservation of a conference or meeting space will be through the exchange between the agency requesting use of space and the agency providing available space.
The information below provides several tools to help find meeting facilities that may meet your requirements:
- Searching: You can search for specific keywords when you enter them in the "Search" box appearing at the top of each column the table to restrict the list of meeting facilities shown. As you type your search term, the list automatically reduces to those entries containing the text you provide. Note that this search capability is not case sensitive (i.e., searching for "max" is exactly the same as searching for "Max"). You can find facilities based on capacity by providing a minimum capacity at the top of the "Capacity" column, limiting the list to only those facilities with the specified capacity or larger. You can also use the list of specific cost ranges at the top of the "Cost" column to limit the list of facilities; choosing an entry from that list will show only those facilities matching the selected cost category.
- Sorting: You can control the ordering of the entries shown in the table by selecting the corresponding column headings. For example, if you select the "Cost" column heading, that will change the order in which rows are shown to rank the results by cost in ascending order (by default). If you select that column heading a second time, that will reverse the ordering. If you select that column heading a third time, that will return the ordering to the default order.
- Controlling how many entries are shown: You may wish to review the list of meeting facilities in smaller groups or "pages". To do this, you would use the "Show 'All' entries" option listed just above the table. By default, the table shows all meeting facilities. Changing that selection, for instance, to "Show '25' entries" will show information about 25 meeting facilities at a time. You can then move between the pages using the "next" and "previous" controls appearing below the table.
- Notes regarding the "Cost" category: The cost of using a facility is specified based on the following ranges:
In some cases, the cost for using a facility may vary based on whether one or more of the available services are used. Additional information may be available in the notes about the accommodations. If you have questions about the anticipated cost for a given facility, we recommend that you contact the point of contact listed for the facility.
