Why Choose Our Destination?

The recently updated Buffalo Niagara Convention Center has 110,000 total square feet of flexible meeting and exhibit space, including a 64,410 square foot column-free exhibit hall and 21 meeting and breakout rooms. The center is surrounded by more than 1600 new or renovated hotel rooms. Planners and attendees alike will appreciate the conveniences that come with a meeting in Buffalo Niagara. From dozens of restaurants within walking distance of your conference hotel to the special attention to detail you receive from the entire community. Planning a sports event? Buffalo Niagara has state-of-the-art swimming, track & field, soccer and softball facilities, and our region has a long resume of hosting events like the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament 1st and 2nd rounds, the NHL Draft, U.S. Synchronized Swimming and many major amateur hockey tournaments. Located along Interstate 90, within 500 miles of major cities like New York, Boston, Chicago and Toronto, Buffalo's incredibly accessible. The Buffalo Niagara International Airport averages approximately 110 daily flights with nonstop service to 22 airports. Buffalo also features Amtrak service. Buffalo Niagara combines big city entertainment, dining, art and culture with small town affordability. Plus, it’s only 20 minutes away from one of the world’s natural wonders – Niagara Falls. From boutique luxury hotels to quaint bed and breakfasts to large chains with expansive meeting facilities, Buffalo Niagara offers a wide range of accommodations. In recent years, Buffalo Niagara’s hotel options have only gotten stronger, with an influx of new properties and renovations at many of the major chain locations. Food lovers rejoice, because while Buffalo is justifiably proud of its chicken wings (and no trip to Buffalo is complete without a stop at the Anchor Bar), there is so much more to Buffalo’s culinary scene than hot sauce and blue cheese dressing. Start with enormous ethnic diversity, add in a profusion of local farms and orchards and a microclimate that’s ideal for fruit and grape growing and what do you get? You get great restaurants, delicious local specialties, wine trails, farmers markets and gourmet food shops. If shopping is your thing, you’ll find everything from hip, independently-owned boutiques in Buffalo’s trendy Elmwood Village neighborhood to major department stores at a number of local shopping centers and malls, including the Walden Galleria. Sports fan? Buffalo has a wealth of options, including the Bills, Sabres, AAA baseball’s Bisons, world-class fishing, great skiing, and college and amateur sports. And Buffalo abounds with other forms for entertainment. The city's Canalside waterfront district hosts more than 800 events per year, the renovated and reopened Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural National Historic Site lets you stand where Roosevelt took the oath of office and the new Burchfield Penney Art Center is drawing national attention. With architectural masterpieces by Frank Lloyd Wright and others, world class modern and contemporary art at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, touring Broadway productions at the magnificent Shea’s Performing Arts Center, a fascinating history, and countless festivals and events, Buffalo is alive with things to do and discover.
