Visit Boise Is Ready to Help You Plan a Memorable Event in a Walkable, Clean, and Culture-Filled City

By Visit Boise

Part rugged, part refined, Boise is the ideal place for planners’ 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 10 minutes from downtown, the Boise Airport offers nonstop service to 25 popular destinations.

The Neighborhood, a 100,000-square-foot connected meeting and event space, is in the heart of Downtown Boise. 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-foot sports arena offering 5,000 stadium seats. Attached to the arena, The Grove Hotel provides over 250 luxury hotel rooms and VIP arena-facing suites for additional event seating. Steps away, Boise Centre, Idaho’s largest convention center, has 86,000 sq. ft. of space and gallons of coffee are only $40!  There are nearly 1,500 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 is home to The Basque Museum and Cultural Center, restaurants, The Basque Market, and The Basque Center. With heavy emphasis on local, farm-to-table options, the city’s center comes alive each night with well over 100 restaurants, breweries, wine-tasting rooms, and bars within walking distance. The thriving arts scene can be experienced through murals and city-funded public art throughout the community. There are always new offerings being added in the up-and-coming city, including Hotel Renegade, opening downtown this April with 122 luxury rooms and a rooftop bar and event space.

The Visit Boise team will help plan and execute every part of an event, starting with the venue and hotel selection. For qualified buyers, the cost of air and hotel expenses for on-site visits is covered. Boise also makes it simple to book multiple hotels for city-wide meetings or conventions- there is a master hotel contract available where most downtown hotels use the same contract language, making the contracting process easier.
