"A beautiful, historic city offering easy access for local and international travelers, and an excellent meeting venue that complemented our program and provided immediate access to hotels, restaurants and the city's downtown core, Boston has proven to be one of the society's favorite cities with both organizers and delegates. Combine that with major academic institutions like Harvard, MIT and Boston College, as well as strong links to pharmaceutical and software companies, and Boston was also a natural fit to attract local attendees and expand our reach within the community."

Steven Leard, ISCB Conferences Director, International Society for Computational Biology
"The city of Boston has historically been, and continues to be, an excellent location for the American Association of Immunologists annual meeting. From housing procurement to attendee promotion, top-notch sales and service teams are there to support in any and all ways possible. Boston is by far one of the best cities to work with for planning a meeting! "

Diane E. Kovats, CMP Senior Meetings Manager American Association of Immunologists
"LPL Financial hosted its annual national conference at the BCEC in 2007 and 2010, and will be back in 2015 and hopefully beyond. The Advantage Boston and MCCA teams have been fantastic to work with, taking time to learn about our firm, customers, sponsors and conference objectives. Open communication, positive attitudes, and a sense of hospitality and pride in their facility and hometown has always been present and recognized by our team and planning partners. Their teams have been an extension of ours throughout the planning and execution of our events, and they've gone above and beyond to meet, if not exceed, our expectations."

Shannon Shorey Vice President, Conference Services LPL Financial
