Phoenix, AZ Meeting Planning Overview

Phoenix, AZ | Meeting Planning Overview

Phoenix is the cosmopolitan heart of Arizona and the sunniest metropolis in the United States. One of the nation’s most beautiful and sophisticated convention centers is located in downtown Phoenix, five minutes away from the airport and within easy walking distance of 16 hotels, two light-rail stations and the new CityScape entertainment district. Phoenix’s pedestrian-friendly urban core is surrounded by rugged mountains, resort enclaves and the kind of cactuses most people see only in cartoons. Phoenix also is the gateway to one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World — the Grand Canyon — and the city’s famously sunny weather encourages al fresco dining, outdoor adventure and year-round golf.
