Up-and-Coming Boise

Boise is ranked one of the most up-and-coming cities in America. Attendees love our meeting spaces, and they love all the unexpected things they can do after hours just as much. Boise offers the perfect mix of urban and outdoor activities.

There are plenty of after hours options for attendees.

Aside from being a convenient drive-to destination for its neighbors in the Northwest, the Boise Airport, which is just ten minutes from downtown, offers nonstop service to and from 29 destinations. They recently added cities such as Atlanta, NYC, Palm Springs, Nashville and Austin to the list. Getting here has never been easier. Pair this with unmatched resources like GBAC STAR™ facilities, tech-equipped venues, 100,000-square-feet of meeting and event space, expansive green spaces, and you have a future meeting worth planning.

When you come to Boise, you don’t just book a meeting, you book an exceptional, walkable experience. The creative and comfortable environment will provide inspiration for your meeting-goers. Boise amenities are second-to-none with offerings like over 1,300 walkable hotel rooms and more than 100,000 square feet of meeting space.

Boise has over 55 hotels, ten of which are just steps from Boise Centre, Idaho’s largest convention and meeting venue. That’s 31 flexible meeting rooms with more than 100 restaurants all nearby, not to mention bars, shops, wineries and breweries, entertainment, the Boise River and hundreds of miles of mountain trails within walking distance. Plus, with a fully-customizable virtual event studio on-site, Boise Centre audiovisual experts are ready to help you engage, inform and connect virtually with your audience, whether you’re meeting face-to-face or holding a hybrid virtual/in-person event. Boise Centre offers event organizers a complete solution with robust video conference and streaming services, professional-quality event design and full in-house editing services.

Once you arrive, you’ll notice that the city itself is nestled at the foot of the Boise National Forest, which boasts not only stunning views from downtown meeting venues but also access to a variety of outdoor activities. Many meeting planners and attendees spend a few extra days before or after their meetings and conventions to enjoy snow sports such as skiing or snowboarding in the winter and mountain biking and rafting in the warmer months. Boise is everything you want in a visit to the West with friendly locals who put you at ease.

When your attendees have a break between sessions, they will be delighted to find that there are miles of trails easily accessible from downtown lodging. The Boise Greenbelt is a tree-lined pathway that runs along the Boise River through the heart of the city and winds through shaded, tree-lined paths. Meeting attendees can walk, jog or take an electric scooter down the trail for a quick view of the city and river. Boise has the cool, funky, small-city appeal that bigger cities once claimed, but is still easy to navigate and not overcrowded.

Come see why so many meeting planners choose our affordable, clean, walkable downtown for their events.
