Why Choose Our Destination?

The Cincinnati region is experiencing a vibrant transformation, with more than $2 billion in redevelopment in recent years. With an explosion of unique restaurants, shops and experiences, Cincinnati is an energetic and innovative community perfect for groups to meet and explore. When it comes to conventions, Cincy’s transformation is just getting started. Our downtown convention district is undergoing a $700 million reinvention. With construction to begin in 2024, the Convention District marquees will be a reimagined Duke Energy Convention Center (DECC) connected to a brand new, 800-room Headquarters Hotel. Even more convenient is that it's compact and walkable, with an additional 3,000 hotel rooms and more than 220 restaurants, 50 bars and 300 shops within blocks of the Downtown Convention District. The DECC currently features nearly 200,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space, and its stunning 40,000 sq. ft. Grand Ballroom. Its upgrades will feature an additional 12,000 sq. ft. of modernized extended exhibit space, upgraded meeting rooms and ballrooms and major technology and energy improvements. To add to the appeal, the development will pour over Elm Street to create a two-acre park and outdoor convention space for additional activations. Just 15 miles north of downtown, Cincinnati’s suburban convention option, the Sharonville Convention Center (SCC) and the Cincy North Convention District have gone through a renaissance of its own. The SCC opened a $21 million renovation and expansion that features 19 rooms with 65,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space and a 40,000 sq. ft. exhibition hall. Nearby, more than 20 nearby hotels house more than 3,000 guest rooms many of which are also new and renovated. Cincinnati is conveniently located within 500 miles of 60 percent of the U.S. population. The region is accessible and affordable with several new, low-cost and international routes being added at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. Once here, attendees can explore the city using the Cincinnati Connector streetcar. The streetcar connects the Banks Entertainment District, the Central Business District and the historic Over-the-Rhine neighborhoods, giving attendees an experience of a vibrant mix of cultures and contrasts. See for yourself why culture reigns in Cincinnati and see how we connect attendees to endless possibilities and an experience nothing short of spectacular.
