The Office of Cable Television, Film, Music and Entertainment (OCTFME) recognizes The SHOWROOM as the July 2019 Location of the Month.
The SHOWROOM is located in the heart of downtown Washington, DC, just blocks away from the Washington Convention Center and National Mall. With its great location, generous size, and unique amenities, it is a wonderful space and inviting environment for film, television, video, entertainment, interactive multi-media and digital productions, as well as festivals and conventions.
The venue features over 8,000 square feet of space and an open floor plan. Eighteen-foot ceilings accentuate the size of the venue and are perfect for custom lighting and ornaments. This modern, industrial blank canvas can be tailored to suit any production or event. In addition to the main floor, productions also have access to the green room, located on the second floor. This space is the perfect getaway from the main event space, with chic furnishings and a great view of the main venue area from the balcony.
“We are truly honored to be the featured location of the month for July 2019, by the DC Office of Cable Television, Film, Music, and Entertainment!” stated Sarah Hunt, Owner of The SHOWROOM. “From productions to conferences, exhibits and galas, The SHOWROOM is an event space in the heart of DC where we get to bring people together from all walks of life. As DC residents and small business owners we are thrilled to be recognized by such a great organization within our own city.”
