Inaugural Preparedness

Preparing for the 2013 Inaugural Events

To prepare for the 2013 Inaugural events, the Board of Trade will host a conference call on Friday, January 11th featuring top business, transportation and security officials to discuss the implications and opportunities surrounding this historic weekend. Over 800,000 people are expected this year. Less than President Obama’s first, but still a big crowd.

Call will discuss security plans and precautions; road closures, travel restrictions and regional accessibility; Metro hours of operation and implications of high ridership and more to help determine whether your office/workplace operations will be affected. Learn about the demand for hospitality, restaurant activities and the general sense of what to expect when the Inauguration takes place.
