Get a glimpse into Alexandria's meeting hotel portfolio without investing a great deal of time. ALX Speed Fams are choreographed to showcase several of Old Town’s award-winning properties with a seamless experience in a short time frame. Learn about what’s new in restaurants, off-site activities and more while we whisk you from hotel to hotel enjoying interactive and fun experiences at each stop.  Wind up the tour enjoying a glass or two of wine with your peers at our popular Wine and Wisdom Wednesdays Uncorked.

Here's what planners have to say...

"Thanks for a fabulous Speed FAM yesterday. I can only imagine how much hard work and planning must go into those things and you did a great job! Thanks for showing us such a lovely time."

–Krista Lundberg, CMP, CSEP, ASCD

"The West End Speed FAM was terrific. I learned more about two known resources, Hilton Alexandria Mark Center and Port City Brewing Co., and was introduced to a new and exciting property [Courtyard Alexandria Pentagon South] right under my nose.”

–John C. Good, Director, CARE (Credit Abuse Resistance Education)

"It would have taken me six months to accomplish what I did in one day."

–Dave Edwards, Dave Edwards Events

"Thanks for such a nice afternoon/evening during December's holiday Speed FAM and reception! Visit Alexandria did a fantastic job, and the hotels were quite impressive as well!"

–Julie Thomas, Dental Trade Alliance
