Elevator Speech

We’ve all heard about the famous “Elevator Speech”—or how to make your point in 5 Floors or less. This idea is particularly important to Sales Professionals since we are so often confronted with the limited window of time available to us in talking to clients on a Sales Call, in a Tradeshow Booth, or for anyone who is in a hurry.  We believe that you want to make 3 important points:

  1. Central Location:  It’s easy to get here with two major airports, easy access by train or car, and the convenience of a Mid-Atlantic location.
  2. Best of both worlds:  You get great proximity to DC but also all of the convenience of NoVA.
  3. Something for Everyone:  FXVA puts the meeting in the Heart of NoVA and the Heart of the Visitor Experience.

Here is our take on those three talking points.  We hope that our Elevator Speech will help you describe the best of Fairfax County!

The National Capital Region is full of wonderful and exciting places to explore, and Fairfax County gives you the best of both worlds:  proximity to Washington, DC with all of the unique history and convenience of Northern Virginia.  Located between the region’s two major airports, a meeting in Fairfax County means that your guests have the luxury of choosing the most convenient and the most affordable flight.  And our convenient location in the Mid-Atlantic region makes it easy for those who prefer to drive or travel by train.

For visitors seeking the most from their visit to the Washington area, Fairfax County is unique in that it is sits at the center of the region’s tourism experience. The extended region stretches from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and Annapolis to Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley with its Skyline Drive along the rim of the Blue Ridge Mountains.  All of this and everything in between, including all that Washington, DC has to offer, are easily accessible from Fairfax County. By the way, you won’t be the first to discover the benefits of Fairfax County’s central location. A young surveyor seeking to ply his trade from a central spot in the region discovered this secret long ago. His name—George Washington. His home—Mount Vernon. Its location—Fairfax County, Virginia.

There is literally something for EVERYONE in Fairfax County.… Outdoor Enthusiasts thrill at the natural wonder of Great Falls National Park…Patrons of the Arts marvel at the incredible beauty of seeing the National Symphony Orchestra perform under the stars at Wolf Trap, the country’s only national park for the performing arts…and history buffs immerse themselves in sites not found anywhere else in the Country. You name it; we’ve got it! Come visit us and Connect with America!
