New plans for the AAPM Night Out – The 2016 Night Out will not be a dinner event.

Instead, you are encouraged to meet your colleagues at the venue for limited light snacks and then make your way to one of the many restaurants in the area for dinner. Or, dine first and make your way to the event for a bite of something sweet at the end of the evening!

This change has been made in an effort to contain costs, but still provide an opportunity for attendees to socialize with colleagues and see a bit of Washington, DC.

The Newseum has been named by TripAdvisor as one of the top 25 museums. Fifteen galleries display 500 years of news history in a unique place where you can travel through time, history and media. Displays include the largest piece of the Berlin Wall outside of Germany, a somber 911 Memorial, and daily print editions of newspapers from around the world. Several hands-on exhibits are open, and the top-floor terrace offers one of the best views of the Capitol.Grand Plaza

Each adult Night Out ticket will include 1 drink ticket, good for beer or a glass of wine. Again, you will be disappointed if you come to the Night Out expecting a meal. Please make your plans in advance and dine at a restaurant of your choice and favorite cuisine! We have compiled a list of restaurants located between the Convention Center and The Newseum, and encourage you to either make reservations on your own, or with help from the restaurant desk at the Convention Center. View restaurant list »

Buses will depart from the L Street entrance of the Convention Center and loop continually to the Newseum. If you decide to walk, please use the 555 Pennsylvania Avenue entrance. Don’t forget your ticket, required for entrance to The Newseum. This ticket is included in some registration categories. Tickets may also be purchased on-site at the AAPM registration desk.
