Urban Cool Meets Accessibility in Cleveland

A Sponsored Message from Destination Cleveland

Don’t miss this dynamic, innovative city where attendees feel right at home.

When it comes to describing their city, Destination Cleveland says it best: “We’ve got world-class experiences without the world-class ego.” For meeting and event planners, this translates to a down-to-earth, accessible meeting destination with big-city perks exactly where they matter most: meeting venues and entertainment.

A State-of-the-Art Convention Center

What’s new in Cleveland? A technologically advanced, amenities-packed convention complex, for one. The Huntington Convention Center, located centrally in downtown, is home to almost 400,000 square feet of meeting space spread across 41 meeting rooms. The center’s flexible layout—the 225,000 square foot exhibit hall, for example, can be divided into three separate halls—ensures the space can accommodate any type of gathering you can dream up. As does its built-to-impress technology infrastructure, which boasts robust streaming and video conferencing capabilities, a network that can host 15,000 simultaneous connections and holographic tour guides.

Entertainment and Dining That Rocks

When you book a meeting in the same city as the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame (located just steps from the convention center), rest assured your attendees will enjoy entertainment options that are off the charts. Cleveland was recently recognized by Fodor’s Travel as one of the “12 Best Music Cities That Aren’t Nashville.” Which means that in addition to exploring the Hall of Fame—which hosts exhibits on all types of American music, not just rock—attendees have many options for enjoying live music. The Agora, a world-famous venue that’s hosted Bob Marley and Bruce Springsteen, and the Cleveland Institute of Music are both local favorites.

When it’s time to eat, almost 200 restaurants sit within walking distance of the convention complex. But perhaps Cleveland’s best-kept-secret is the immense diversity baked into its food scene. With more than 100 ethnicities represented here, attendees can sample the globe, enjoying everything from a beef cheek pierogi to BBQ kielbasa to farm-to-table vegetables to delicious Asian Pho to exquisite French cuisine.

Convenience meets cool in this one-of-a-kind meetings destination.
