Boston and its neighboring town of Cambridge are not only justly renowned for their rich history, but also for their arts and cultural scene, technological and medical leadership, and top-notch higher education facilities. It only makes sense that Boston is a fantastic business meeting destination. Home to meeting venues small and large, from intimate meeting spaces in historic brownstones to countless meeting room options at the famed Hynes Convention & Exhibition Center on the water, Boston offers the perfect combination of then and now for business meeting planners.

Outside of the conference room, destination meeting attendees can visit the home of past resident Paul Revere where he lived during the Revolutionary War. Ascend a hill to view the iconic granite obelisk marking the site of the Battle of Bunker Hill, a seminal conflict in the revolution. Shop and eat inside Faneuil Hall Marketplace, a mecca of retai offerings in an ‘open market’ style venue dating back to the mid-1700s. Sample the Italian culinary delights in Boston’s coveted North End, or take a land and sea tour into beautiful Boston harbor.
