Why Raleigh, N.C.?

A successful event is more than just about the right meeting venue, it's about the right meeting destination. Centrally located in the heart of both N.C. and the Southeast, the Raleigh area is an excellent, convenient, affordable choice for you and your attendees.

Raleigh, N.C., is a lively, smart and celebratory destination for meetings and events. The urban revival that accompanied the 2008 development of a new convention campus in downtown Raleigh is still going strong; this dynamic energy of Raleigh is one that your meeting attendees themselves will feel.

As a state capital, Raleigh's environment is also lively, uniquely welcoming and friendly for all. We host some of N.C.'s largest annual events at places like the North Carolina State Fairgrounds. The Raleigh area is a natural center for these civic and cultural festivities, and we tend to surprise attendees with how much else there is to see and do here at any time of year.
