High-tech and historic, traditional as well as eclectic, highly sophisticated whilst relaxingly casual! Boston is a city of delightful contradictions, catering to a myriad of tastes and event possibilities!
Boston has 2 major convention centres
The Boston Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC) has flexible, easily configured spaces with the latest high-end technical support systems making it perfect for both large and small-scale events.
The BCEC is located two miles from Logan International airport, two minutes from Boston's major highways and a few minutes from downtown Boston and more than 35,000 hotel rooms.
The John B. Hynes Veterans Memorial Convention Centre - is located in the centre of Boston in the city’s Back Bay area. The Hynes is large enough for conferences, trade shows, and conventions, whilst also offering distinctive, adaptable spaces ideal for executive functions, receptions, training sessions, and other small-scale events.
Meetings & Conferences
The city's economy is based on research, electronics, engineering, finance, and high technology - principally biotechnology; and with Harvard, MIT and Tufts all within the vicinity, Boston and neighbouring Cambridge are perfect locations, especially for subject related educational meetings and conferences.
The city’s extensive conference and venue facilities are not weather dependant however Incentive programmes are best suited for the period May to October. The summer months offer a wider range of activities such as whale watching or yacht racing and the city neighbourhoods can be explored on foot or via Duck or Trolley Bus tours. Boston has no shortage of top class restaurants, offering a real eclectic mix of cuisine as well as lobster and seafood specialities of the region.
A visit to Cape Cod or the outlying islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket all of which embody the real essence of New England can be added as an enhancement to any Boston programme.
Alternatively Newport less than 2 hours from the city is a haven of contrasts and worthy of inclusion in any incentive programme. Natural seaside beauty, quaint wharves and cobblestone streets housing unique shops and galleries, contrast dramatically with the magnificent mansions of Belleview Avenue built by the industrial barons during America’s Gilded Age.
