The best part of our venues is how modular the event spaces are- we were even the first to lay eyes on the newest Ducati models of 2018 as the first stop on their "More Than Red" tour. On January 17th the Ducati truck and trailer made it's way down F st bringing the Panigale V4, 959 Corse, Multistrada 1260, Monster 821, X Diavel, and Scrambler 1100 to the National Union Building to show off to the greater Washington D.C. area.
This exclusive red carpeted VIP event utilized the National Union Building's stunning two floor "retail space", nicknamed the Owlstone, in combination with the second floor south wing. Upon arrival, guests could enter the space through the first floor glass doors and immediately catch a glimpse of one of the displayed bikes. Ascending up the internal stairwell to the second floor, guests could enjoy a bite from the stationary hors d'oeurves display or sip on an Italian beer at the bar, both catered by Avila Catering, while admiring two additional bikes staged on the floor.
The grand reveal took place in the second floor south wing, where even the Ducati North American CEO, Jason Chinnock, was on site to introduce to newest models. For any bike fanatics, this was a grand affair that they are still talking about to this day!
