Excipient World event venue and hotel & travel information
Excipient World Venue
Excipient World is the largest gathering of excipient users and suppliers in North America. The 2019 Excipient World Conference and Expo will be held at the beautiful Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, a Marriott property. The event venue is conveniently located just outside of Washington, DC at National Harbor in Maryland. Special conference hotel rates have been negotiated for participants at the 2019 event.
The Gaylord National Resort offers a world-class venue with enough space to accommodate the event, and a convention room that provides an intimate setting for participants to conduct business, network and learn.
National Harbor is a 350-acre resort destination along the shimmering Potomac River that includes the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, Tanger Outlets, tree-lined promenades with more than 160 enticing shops and 40 delicious restaurants, a marina, and The Capital Wheel – a 180-foot observation wheel featuring panoramic views of the nation’s capital.
MGM Resorts International opened a $1.4 billion integrated casino resort complex on 23 acres overlooking the Potomac River at National Harbor. The MGM National Harbor boasts 125,000 sq. feet of gaming, 18,000 sq. feet of high-end retail, 12 restaurants from renowned local and national chefs, and a 3,000-foot promenade.
The National Harbor Circulator makes it easy to get to all the area’s hot spots, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
