About Conference Location

The NETA Conference will be at the Crystal Gateway Marriott located a few blocks from the Crystal City Station and one stop from Ronald Reagan National Airport. Crystal City is located inside National Landing, the newly defined interconnected and walkable neighborhood that encompasses Crystal City, the eastern portion of Pentagon City and the northern portion of Potomac Yard.

This subset of Arlington, VA, has many upscale hotels, retail stores, restaurants, high-rise apartment buildings and commercial offices. A network of underground shops and walkways attracts visitors from around the region. The area is also popular with tourists, as it offers convenient access to our nation's capital.
