The first official IPW event for the visiting media was appropriately held in the Newseum, Pennsylvania Ave whose mission is to promote, explain and defend free expression.   The over 500 press delegates from around the world were welcomed by the Mayor of DC and Presidents and CEO’s of Destination DC, U.S Travel Association and Brand USA.   The Newseum, which was opened exclusively for this event, has 7 levels of galleries and theatres together with a roof-top terrace with an excellent view of The Capital.   One of the exhibits in the section dedicated to journalists killed in the line of duty is about Veronica Guerin and includes her pen.
