The 74th Annual Machinery Dealers National Association Convention will be held in Washington, D.C. April 23 through April 26th at The Historic Mayflower Renaissance Washington, DC, Hotel. Located in the heart of our Nation’s Capital, and just blocks from the White House and Washington National Museums, the Mayflower Renaissance boasts 657 state-of-the-art rooms and 74 luxurious suites and has been the site for countless inaugural balls and state visits. The hotel has a place on the National Registry of Historic Places and is a Historic Hotel of America with the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

President Truman gave the Mayflower its tagline, “Washington’s Second Best Address” after the White House.


You will be a quick walk from two metro stations, shopping, and the nightlife of Dupont Circle and Georgetown. The Mayflower is ideally situated to explore museums, galleries, parks and Federal buildings that make up our Nation’s Capital.
