Why Meet in Boise

Once visitors arrive in Boise, they are often sold on the convenience, pedestrian friendly, accessible community filled with amenities. In 2017 three new hotels will be added to the city's downtown core. The addition of these hotels coupled with the expansion of the Boise Centre create a great opportunity for Boise to be the site for more meetings, events and conventions.

Boise experiences all four seasons and each season has something for everyone. In the spring golf and ski fans rejoice! The ability to golf during the day and ski at night, just 16 miles from downtown at Bogus Basin Ski Area is a huge draw for our golf and ski fanatics. Long summer days last until 10:00 p.m. allowing for biking, rafting, concerts and outdoor dining for those who want to experience a little bit of everything. Enjoy running, biking or walking along our 25 mile greenbelt path that runs along the Boise River, located in the heart of the city on a beautiful fall morning before heading to the Boise State Football game that evening. In winter you can find tracks in the snow just miles outside of downtown from snowshoes, snowboards, downhill skis, cross-country skis and even bicycles with tires made specifically to navigate the snow. Each season brings adventure in Boise!

In the last couple of years Boise's Airport has focused on expanding non-stop service and adding a local touch. There are twenty cities with direct flights into Boise, sixty flights in and out each day and all Boise area hotels offer free airport shuttles. When walking through the terminal, you will find local Boise vendors operating restaurants and shops. These efforts have made a significant impact on visitors and locals who fly through Boise.
