As the urban heart of Arizona and the sunniest metropolis in the country, Phoenix makes meetings memorable. The Phoenix Convention Center sits in the middle of a walkable downtown filled with independent restaurants, cocktail lounges, craft brewpubs and live-music venues.

After the sun sets on a day of meetings, Phoenix's nightlife comes alive. Downtown and its surrounding neighborhoods are the epicenter of an entertainment scene where delegates can catch a live music act, play retro arcade games and engage in a friendly bocce ball match. Or just kick back and sip a cocktail - after all, Phoenix was named a "Cocktail City on the Rise" by With more than 100 restaurants in the downtown area, including two by James Beard Award-winning chefs, foodies are in for a treat too.
