Events DC President and CEO recognized in Washington Business Journal’s top 100 Power List


Greg O'Dell, President & CEO, Events DC was recently selected by Washington Business Journal as one of the region's most influential business leaders. From discussions about the Walter E. Washington Convention Center’s future bookings — including snagging Japanese anime show Otakon from Baltimore — to his agency’s significant redevelopment plans of the historic Carnegie Library, O'Dell has strategically positioned his organization and Washington, DC as a leader in world-class event experiences.

Under O’Dell’s leadership, the city’s events organization hosted the massive Delta Sigma Theta 51st National Convention and 100th anniversary, doubled the number of endurance events held at RFK Memorial Stadium since 2011 and took on a title sponsorship of the Nation’s Triathlon.
