Part-rugged, part-refined, Boise is the ideal place for your next meeting or event. The mild, four-season climate and easy access to foothill trails and a mountain-fed river make it a haven for attendees looking for adventure after their meetings and conferences.
Just ten minutes from downtown, the Boise Airport offers nonstop service to 25 popular destinations.
In the heart of Downtown is The Neighborhood, a 100,000-square-feet connected meeting and event space. Within The Neighborhood, planners will find the Idaho Central Arena, the premier sporting and event arena in the Northwest. It includes an exhibit hall and 17,000 square feet sports arena offering 5,000 stadium seats. Attached to the arena, The Grove Hotel provides over 250 luxury hotel rooms as well as VIP arena facing suites that provide additional event seating. Steps away, the Boise Centre, Idaho’s largest convention center has a 25,000 square foot ballroom and gallons of coffee are only $40! There are more than 1,300 hotel rooms within walking distance, including boutique and luxury options.
Just a short walk from The Neighborhood is the Basque Block, a lively off-site venue option. It’s home to the Basque Museum and Cultural Center, restaurants, the Basque Market and Basque Center. With heavy emphasis on local, farm-to-table options, the city center comes alive each night with well over 100 restaurants and bars within walking distance. The thriving arts scene can be experienced through murals and city-funded public art throughout the community.
The Visit Boise team will help you plan and execute every part of your event, starting with your venue and hotel selection. For qualified buyers the cost of air and hotel expenses on site visits is covered. Boise also makes it simple to book multiple hotels for city-wide meetings or conventions — all downtown hotels use the same contract language, making the contracting process easy.
