Announcing our next Summit venue is always a blast, because it officially launches another cycle of bringing the best of fatherhood to the people who love it the most. And now, slap-dab amid all the Father’s Day fireworks, we’re lighting our own and announcing that for 2020 we’re headed back to one of our favorites, the Mandarin Oriental in Washington DC!
And we’re going the weekend of Feb. 27-29. LEAP DAY!
We had an absolute blast in DC back in 2016. We somewhat incredibly set a record for the warmest temperature during a Summit (68 degrees!). We learned that opening keynote Brad Meltzer went to summer camp with Oren Miller’s wife, Beth. Michael Strahan showed us it’s possible to be a charismatic conversationalist and an all-time leading sack maniac at the same time.
We saw the triumphant debut of LEGO MAN!
Most importantly, we were in the nation’s capital during a presidential election year, discussing policy efforts with the people working hard to legislate more convenience into parents’ lives. And given the extraordinary Speaker interest we’ve already received from inside the Beltway (and the elevated activism from brands like Dove Men+Care, who are taking their support for paid leave up a bunch of notches), 2020 is shaping up to be a real doozy.

It’s hard to believe that this is our ninth Summit announcement, but that’s probably because it’s so damn exciting to leap into the Next Big Thing. We hope you’ll be there to leap with us.
