Washington, DC is located near three major airports: Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), Dulles International Airport (IAD), and Baltimore/Washington International Airport (BWI). Reagan National Airport is located closest to DC and is accessible via its own Metro stop on the Blue and Yellow lines. If commuting to The Westin via Metro from DCA, hop on the blue line at the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport Metro Stop and get off at McPherson Square (7 stops). You can also take a taxi, Uber or Lyft into DC. This will cost around $15-$25.
Dulles Airport is located 26 miles outside of DC in Virginia. To get downtown you can take a taxi, shuttle, Uber or Lyft. A taxi to DC will cost around $60-$70. BWI is the furthest but may offer better flight deals. All three airports offer domestic and international flights daily.
Getting Around DC:
Metro is the most convenient way to get around DC. This public transportation system consists of six color-coded lines: Red, Blue, Orange, Silver, Green, and Yellow that are connected to each other via transfer stations. To ride Metro you must pay via a SmarTrip card which can be purchased at any Metro station with cash or credit. Most fares range from $2.25 - $6 per trip. Metro runs from 5 a.m. to midnight on weekdays and from 7 a.m. to midnight on weekends. The closest Metro stop to the conference venue is McPherson Square, accessible via the orange, silver, and blue lines. Click here for more information about Metro.
Another way to travel in DC is by taxi. There are many and all accept cash, credit and debit cards.
To travel by uber or Lyft, download the app onto your smartphone and you can begin requesting a ride by entering the address of your destination.
The DC Circulator travels along six specific routes and is affordable at just $1 per ride.
When traveling to the 2019 Food Packaging Conference, the U.S. may require visitors to obtain a visa. This process can take a few weeks to several months to complete, so please be sure to apply early. For more information about your country’s visa requirements, visit the U.S. State Department website for the latest information when planning your trip.
ILSI North America can provide a formal invitation letter to assist with the visa submission process. Please contact Angela Roberts (email@example.com) to request a letter.

ILSI’s mission is to provide science that improves human health and well-being and safeguards the environment. There is no substitute for the in-person engagement that has come to define ILSI’s Annual Meetings. Each year, we join scientific colleagues from academia, government, industry, and civil society for state-of-the-science symposia, keynote lectures, networking events, and ILSI branch meetings.
Get the latest information in new technologies and innovations for diet and activity assessment, study design, food safety, novel foods, and food processing & waste. The scientific program at the ILSI Annual Meeting is relevant for all experts in the food safety and nutrition communities.
Nothing beats the value of interacting with colleagues in-person. ILSI brings scientific thought leaders together from all sectors, allowing for face-to-face discussion and collaboration to solve and identify some of the biggest challenges facing the food safety and nutrition community.
Attending ILSI Annual Meetings allows participants to take a step back and look at challenges in nutrition, food safety, and health through the viewpoint of colleagues that they don't engage with normally.
Attending ILSI Annual Meetings allows participants to draw attention to challenges that not everyone is aware of. It is a chance to connect with other experts and take a leadership role while using the resources and network provided by the unique ILSI platform.
