The 2014 United States Cyber Crime Conference will take place at the National Conference Center in Lansdowne this year.
Visit Loudoun estimated the economic impact of the event could be nearly $230,000.
The Cyber Crime Conference expects more than 1,000 guests from law enforcement, criminal and civil law, forensic examiners, government and private sector IT professionals, academia, and other international partners between April 25 and May 3.
According to the event's website, "This is the only event of its kind that provides both hands-on digital forensics training and an interactive forum for cyber professionals to network."
Hit particularly hard by the economic downturn, government sequestration and general government cutbacks, the National Conference Center has struggled to fill its rooms for months.
“This conference is a win for Loudoun,” said Beth Erickson, the interim president and CEO at Visit Loudoun. “Visit Loudoun has been working with Loudoun meeting and hotel properties like the National Conference Center to help mitigate the impact of government sequestration on travel."
Price to attend the conference costs anywhere from $650-$1,100.
Registration opens today, and prices are available via the conference's website at usacybercrime.com/registration.
