New York: Why New York State is the Perfect Conference, Convention or Meeting Destination

New York State is rich in history and its lush countryside provides the perfect backdrop for destination meetings large and small. It’s a state where nations were planned, treaties were signed and islands were famously acquired. It’s a state where, in 1825, the monumental Erie Canal opened a viable avenue for transportation of goods from the Atlantic Ocean to the Great Lakes. It’s a state where sports records were broken at the Olympic Games in Lake Placid. And it’s a state where huge metropolises coexist with rugged mountains and agricultural land.

Because of this fortuitous confluence of commerce, culture and nature, New York State sets the stage for meetings of every stripe, from intimate retreats to massive annual conferences. Whether your meeting venue requires a more urban landscape or nestles comfortably into the countryside, New York State has everything you could need for your next conference. Few views can compare with the awe-inspiring Niagara Falls when looking out your conference room window.

When thinking of New York State, many think of Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse to the west, the Adirondacks to the north, or Albany to the southeast. When seeking out an east coast meeting venue alternative to the high stress and expense associated with New York City, New York State gives meeting planners the perfect mix of rural and urban, technology and education, food and culture.
