AGU Conference Center


What We Offer…

The design of the AGU headquarters building was conceived in response to AGU’s strong desire to create architecture identifiable to its organization and which expressed the spirit of its various scientific disciplines. Our 60,673 Square Foot five-story building was designed by Shalom Baranes Associates and built by 1994.

Our conference/meeting facilities are conveniently located within walking distance of Dupont Circle, as well as several tourists attractions that downtown Washington, D.C. has to offer.

For our clients’ convenience there is street parking around the building as well as a parking garage directly across the street from AGU headquarters.
