Greater Phoenix is well-known for its outstanding resorts in the lush oasis of the Sonoran Desert, featuring elaborate pools, desert gardens, Southwest-infused fine dining, luxurious spas and championship golf courses. But you hardly need to be a VIP to get a taste of the finer things in this city, which is home to over 69,000 guest rooms at more than 500 hotels and resorts—covering a range of price points.
And not only does Phoenix offer plenty of rooms, it offers plenty of room.
The indoor/outdoor experience is a way of life in America’s sunniest capital city, making social distancing easy. Open-air meeting and event spaces range from terraces to courtyards to expansive lawns, many with mesmerizing views of the surrounding desert and mountains.
Wherever they turn, attendees will find the hospitality industry taking extra safety precautions. Meeting venues are following the Arizona Department of Health Services’ COVID-19 Recommendations for Private Events, which include the use of masks, proper ventilation systems, limited occupancy and more.
Meanwhile, the Reopen Plan at the Phoenix Convention Center focuses on five key strategies—cleaning and disinfecting; removal of touchpoints where possible; personal preventative measures; the CDC’s physical distancing recommendations; and collaborative client communication and staff training.
Located in the heart of downtown’s walkable core, the convention center—which earned the GBAC STAR accreditation for its strict cleaning protocols—also enables virtual and hybrid meetings. Clients can broadcast virtually from any location in the building, thanks to its integrated technology infrastructure, with round-the-clock technical support.
True to its location, the Phoenix Convention Center offers plenty of room—nearly 1,000,000 square feet of meeting and event space, with 80,000 of that outdoors.
