Okay, here is the latest. Mark and I have just returned from the Hilton Washington Dulles where we toured the facility and signed the contracts for World of Color Expo 2014. The hotel is outstandingly beautiful and very trendy so I cannot image anyone not liking the facility. So, we are now on the calendar with Hilton and have booked almost the complete hotel. In fact, we have all of the meeting rooms and ballrooms that they have at the hotel which is a lot. It is going to be a great Expo.

Since yesterday I have been bombarded with emails wanting to reserve hotel rooms which I had to find out today at my meeting how that will occur. Well hotels do not let you book this far out from an event. Hotel rooms will be available to reserve beginning in November 2013. That is a whole year out from the World of Color Expo 2014. We will let everyone know when they can book the rooms. Also, we will be provided our own website link that we will publish so those attending can go to that link and reserve their room taking advantage of the special Expo room rates.

We have also negotiated the ability to purchase when registration opens for the Expo a daily box lunch. It is very nice lunch which will allow individuals to continue painting and not have to worry about finding some place or something to eat. There will be more on this soon.
I thought I would share a few more pictures of the venue for the World of Color Expo 2014. It is the beautiful Hilton Washington Dulles. This is no slug hotel as there is beauty and trendiness around every corner. With free shuttle service to and from Washington Airport, a free shuttle to the Air and Space Museum (just miles away), free workout facility use, free indoor and outdoor pool use, free lobby technology center use with mac, pc and printers, shopping just miles aw...ay (Reston Town Center and Tysons Corner), and of course Washington DC. Below is a little write up on some of the things to do. You can make this a vacation spot for you and your family. You can paint, chat, mingle, relax, take in the sights and just have an absolutely GREAT time.

This will be the EVENT to attend in 2014! It will be a celebration of Art. So, mark your calendars as hotel reservations begin in November 2013. With an outstanding room rate of $129.00, they will fill up fast.

What to do............................

The Hilton Washington Dulles Airport hotel is set in an excellent central location close to many popular tourist attractions.
