3300 hotel rooms within one mile of convention center

Greater Phoenix always has been a memorable place to hold a meeting. Hotels and resorts bask in near-perpetual sunshine, natural beauty manifests itself in every direction and soul-stirring sunsets illuminate the desert sky on a nightly basis.

There’s a reason more than 16 million visitors flock to Greater Phoenix each year, and that same reason translates to high attendance at meetings and conventions.

Now, thanks to a metamorphosis in Phoenix’s urban core, convening in America’s sixth-largest city packs more value than ever. If you haven’t visited Phoenix lately, you’re in for a pleasant surprise. If you haven’t considered Phoenix lately, it’s time to start.
