Let the Steuben County Conference & Visitors Bureau help you plan your next meeting in Corning & The Finger lakes!
Corning has become a very popular meeting destination thanks to our first class accommodations, unique attractions, and most especially because of our hospitality. When you hold your conference in Corning, your members will be greeted with Welcome Signs in our shop windows, smiling faces from our residents, and a can-do attitude from our entire hospitality partnership.
Whether you are planning an intimate meeting for two, a fund-raiser for 2,000, or a once-in-a-lifetime tour, the team in Corning & the Finger Lakes is here to help. We are happy to arrange a site visit at your convenience. From there we will request proposals from all partners who can accommodate your needs. We can assist you with registration, name badges, provide referrals to local vendors, supply welcome packets, customize a guest program specifically to the interests of your group, and assist with publicity. For itinerary ideas, restaurant and accommodation suggestions, contact your group specialists in Corning & the Finger Lakes. We look forward to welcoming you and your group to the Finger Lakes Region, NY!
We are located in the Finger Lakes region of New York State, within a 4-hour driving radius of most major metropolitan areas of the Northeast U.S. and Canada. We are just twelve miles from the Elmira/Corning Regional Airport, serviced by USAirways and Delta Connection. For those flying to our city, you may rent a car at the airport, or the cost of a taxi is just $24.00.
• The Corning Museum of Glass is constantly expanding and improving, and still offers visitors the opportunity to watch live glass-blowing demonstrations, and groups the opportunity to make their own glass souvenirs! The Rockwell Museum of Western Art, known as the “Best of the West in the East”, is a true treasure. Both museums offer great locations for tours or receptions. The hands-on activities at both museums offer great team building activities as well as result in truly unique souvenirs.
• Corning’s Gaffer District features more than 110 quaint boutiques, outlet stores, galleries, day spas, antique shops and restaurants. Just down the road is a three-point landing that can’t be beat: Glenn H. Curtiss Museum, the National Soaring Museum and the Wings of Eagles Discovery Center. Wouldn’t a sailplane ride over the Chemung River Valley add just the right memory to bring home from your next conference?
• We will really raise your spirits at one of the 100+ wineries in our region. The Finger Lakes Region is the oldest and the second largest wine-producing region in the United States. Pleasant Valley Wine Company, U.S. bonded winery #1 founded in 1860, offers a wonderful tour and makes a great spot for a reception. Perhaps the group will enjoy scenic views of the rolling hills and lush vineyards during lunch, dinner or cocktail reception at one of our many lakeside restaurants.
