    Ultimate Venue Space

    I attended an event here and all I can say is WOW! This venue has it all, from the industrial concept which is a planner's dream to the open spaces and huge auditorium, Capital Turnaround is sure the place to host your event in D.C. The event I attended hosted by IMPACT Collective showed the great potential the venue has to offer and truly made me excited for the future of events here in DC.

If you are looking for a wedding coordinator - look no further! IMPACT is very professional, always on time, in total control of the wedding, and is fun to work with! As a wedding vendor I was impressed with Eddie since he was really on top of everything during the wedding day, as well as before the wedding when he came with the clients to book my services. I would highly recommend IMPACT as an event planner!
