Please note the ILDP will be held at a different hotel–the Hyatt Regency Washington, located on Capitol Hill about 1 mile from the Grand Hyatt. Given the overwhelming response for the ARTBA Federal Issues Program, the Transportation Construction Coalition Fly-In, and an additional a city-wide event bringing thousands of people to DC, the Hyatt Regency Washington is completely sold out. We will have a bus available each morning to take you from the Grand Hyatt to the Hyatt Regency.
