When deciding on a location for your next event, consider the beauty and ease of this capital city.
One of the things that makes Phoenix so appealing to meeting planners is its concentrated city core (1.7 square miles). Surrounded by a breathtaking Southwestern landscape of rugged mountains and cacti, this highly walkable, easy-to-navigate area of downtown makes getting out and exploring the city between meetings indisputably easy.
In the last several years, downtown Phoenix has been revitalized by a billion dollars’ worth of development that includes new hotels, countless dining and nightlife options, and an ultra-convenient light-rail transportation system.
How does this translate for your attendees? A myriad of cultural options, like the Arizona Science Center and The Van Buren (a concert venue converted from a vintage car dealership). Increased walkability to restaurants, craft beer pubs and live music. Easy access to sporting events like Major League Baseball, NBA games and golf at lush resorts. Plus, attendees will be wowed by the Phoenix Convention Center, designed to reflect the natural beauty of the Grand Canyon and offering key event amenities such as an interconnected campus, 99 meeting rooms and a 2,300-seat hall.
Transportation Made Easy
With 18 airlines to choose from and 1,200+ daily flights, Phoenix’s Sky Harbor International Airport—which ranks consistently high among U.S. airports for amenities, accessibility and timelines—makes getting to the city easy and stress-free. Because it’s just four miles from downtown, a quick taxi, rideshare or light-rail trip is all your attendees need to get to their hotel and start enjoying what Phoenix has to offer.
A Power Walker’s Paradise
Downtown Phoenix also boasts several pedestrian-friendly upgrades. Benches and 125 shade trees create perfect spots for attendees to take a break, while wider sidewalks make finding their way to entertainment and dining options easier than ever.
