Airlie, Warrenton Hotel & Conference Center

The 2017 Breakthrough Dialogue East will take place at Airlie, Warrenton Hotel & Conference Center

In 1969, the idea of an annual “Earth Day” was first proposed at Airlie by Senator Gaylord Nelson. Since its founding, Airlie has been recognized for its leadership in sustainability. The Breakthrough Institute is pleased to convene our Dialogue there, “a gathering place for the creativity and ideas that would drive the collective action and required to conserve Earth’s natural resources."

Located on the Northern Virginia periphery, it is just a 50-minute drive from the center of Washington, D.C. yet a world away from the hustle and bustle of our Nation’s Capital. The historic manor house and village of guest rooms are set on 300 acres of verdant Virginia landscape featuring pastoral, lake, and wildlife views.
