Hanoi, Vietnam Meeting Planning Overview
The cultural and economic center of Vietnam's northern region, bustling Hanoi is dotted with tree-lined lakes, pagodas, and historical and military museums. The capital city of Vietnam, modern Hanoi has an old world charm that beckons the meeting and event participants that travel to the city.
Most travelers arrive in Hanoi via the Noi Bai International Airport, set about 30 miles north of downtown Hanoi. The airport connects travelers with major Asian destinations and serves as the main travel hub for northern Vietnam.
Special event venues in Hanoi include rebuilt buildings under various regimes, and can be a mix of Chinese, neo-Parisian, Edwardian, and French- and Soviet-era Russian architecture. The Vietnam National Convention Center is situated in a park landscape and easily recognizable by its distinct wavy roof, the center features nearly 700,000 square feet of event space, including a 3,500-person conference hall; 1,000-person banquet hall; and meeting rooms for 100 to 200 people.
