Phoenix Convention Center

The Valley of the Sun isn't just a destination for those seeking sun and fun. Some serious business goes on here, too! Among the more than 16 million people who visit the Phoenix area each year are more than 3.5 million business people from around the country and around the world who flock to the Valley for conventions, conferences and meetings. 

The nearly 500 Valley hotels offer 60,000 guest rooms, while resorts with full-service conference facilities abound. The METRO Light Rail system, which opened in late 2008, makes getting around convenient for business people on the go.

The $600 million expansion to the Phoenix Convention Center opened in January 2009 and features nearly 900,000 square feet of exhibition and meeting space. Just minutes from Sky Harbor Airport and in the heart of downtown Phoenix, it is now one of the nation's top 20 convention centers and able to host nearly any size event. In 2010, 62 different groups brought 238,000 attendees to the Convention Center.
