We know how difficult things have been both personally and professionally.  The last few months we've experienced something we haven't seen before in our lifetime.  But we also know that travel always recovers.  Our industry is strong. Our industry is resilient.  And when you're ready, Boston is ready for you!

When you're ready to plan your event, remember that Boston offers a unique opportunity for you.

As a city that has been at the forefront of American thought leadership for four centuries, Boston blends its history with cosmopolitan spirit and cutting-edge ingenuity.  Meeting professionals can find all they seek for a successful event in Boston,  able to call upon renowned universities, world-class hospitals, biotech and financial institutions that all contribute to our innovation economy. 

Diversity is the word when it comes to hotels in Boston. Where else can you book a hotel with a rooftop patio that overlooks America's oldest ballpark or stay at a property that once incarcerated Malcolm X?  With more than 127 properties ranging from historic buildings to brand new, state-of-the-art contemporary hotels, the city offers something for every type of group.  

Many of our city's hallowed institutions and cultural venues are at your disposal - from the exquisite courtyards at the Boston Public Library and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, to the Dell Technologies Club at Fenway Park; from the acoustical masterpiece of Symphony Hall, to the resonant Museum of African-American History; and so much more. 

In the South Boston Seaport District, which is anchored by the 2.1 million square foot Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (BCEC), you'll find Boston's Innovation District. Located adjacent to the BCEC, the Lawn on D is an eclectic landscape of quirky public art and fun installations, perfect for any group looking to embrace the experiential side of our destination. 

The Seaport is teeming with dynamic venues for team-building and offsite events: the beautiful waterfront patio at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Abigail's Tea Room at the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum, the Beer Hall at Harpoon Brewery, the diverse studios at the Artists for Humanity Epicenter, and the sprawling restaurant, retail, and entertainment complex at One Seaport to name a few.  The neighborhood will add another 2,000 rooms to its hotel inventory by the end of 2021, including the 1,055-room Omni Boston Hotel at the Seaport.  The Seaport District will soon be more accessible than ever for groups looking to plan a truly exceptional event.  

And in Boston, it's all about access.  With nearly 80 domestic and 60 international non-stop routes to Logan International Airport, finding your way to Boston is easy.  Upon landing, you are a mere mile from the Seaport District, and only three miles from the sweeping Back Bay meetings campus where the John B. Hynes Veterans Memorial Convention Center is connected to over 3,000 hotel rooms, with another 8,000 within one mile. 

Planning your meeting in Boston has never been easier.  The Boston CVB's Sales and Destination Services teams will assist you with everything from sending out your RFPs directly to hotels, attractions, transportation companies and more. With over 1,200 members we will ensure you have all the details covered for a successful meeting.

Travel endures and it is championed by a dedicated travel and hospitality industry.  We are ready when you are. Please call (617) 867-8256 and view our Meeting Planner Overview.
