Arizona's Unique Venues to Consider:
Where to Plan
Flagstaff is situated in the heart of the world’s largest ponderosa pine forest and just over an hour's drive south of the Grand Canyon National Park. Flagstaff is a great location for meetings and events and the perfect home base from which to explore northern Arizona.
Near Scottsdale and surrounded by breathtaking views of the Red Mountains and the Sonoran Desert, We-Ko-Pa Casino Resort is an inspiring destination for business meetings and conferences. Resort-style amenities and a world-class conference facility seamlessly combine to create corporate gatherings that feel more like working vacations on the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation.
Visit Mesa, in partnership with Mesa hotels, has developed the Mesa Clean Stay promise assuring planners and their attendees that they can expect the highest standards of cleanliness and care when meeting in Mesa. Our surrounding Sonoran Desert playground, farm to table dining, and being named the best Arizona city for outdoor lovers makes Mesa a top spot for groups.
Phoenix is home to a 900,000-square foot convention center, located in the downtown core and less than 4 miles from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. The city also boasts an array of hotels and resorts that can accommodate an event of any size. With an abundance of local restaurants, a thriving arts and culture scene and plenty of outdoor venues, Phoenix is ready to host your next event in the heart of the Sonoran Desert.
Plan your next event or business meeting in Prescott and invite your attendee's into our historic community with a charming small-town feel. Enjoy the clean air, the backdrop of mountains surrounding downtown, and the independent storefronts during conference downtime.
Located near Scottsdale, the Salt River Indian Community has all the offerings of the big city, with the heritage and hospitality of a small-town community. Take a break from your usual meeting to enjoy: breakouts in hi-tech poolside cabanas, golf with spectacular mountain views, post-meeting relaxation in a culturally-rich spa, a penguin, sloth or reptile as they mingle with your guests at the largest aquarium in the southwest, outstanding mountain views from the suite, deck or field at Arizona’s “best spring training facility."
The stirring beauty of the Sonoran Desert with year-round sunshine in top-tier accommodations with state-of-the-art meeting facilities and hassle-free transportation in the air and on the ground make Scottsdale an amazing meeting destination.
North Central Arizona
Where soaring red rocks surround an array of resorts, spas, art galleries and boutique wineries. Located less than 30 miles from Flagstaff, nearly 120 miles from the bustling desert city of Phoenix, Sedona is a paradise that offers groups the perfect meeting venue with views guaranteed to impress.
Tempe is a vibrant urban destination for meetings with 10 to 500 attendees and is minutes from Sky Harbor Phoenix International Airport. With a unique blend of indoor and outdoor venues, arts and cultural activities, exciting nightlife, shopping, sweeping desert vistas and green space – as well as a spirited college town vibe, thanks to Tempe's resident Arizona State University campus. Tempe’s central location, easy airport access, great weather and top-notch facilities are a few reasons to add Tempe to your list of host cities.
Tucson hosts thousands of meetings annually due in part to its high-end resorts, full-service hotels and unique venues. Add in outstanding service from Visit Tucson’s sales team, outdoor adventure in the surrounding desert and national parks, and exquisite cuisine from local restaurants that contributed to Tucson being named the nation’s first UNESCO City of Gastronomy, and you have the ingredients for an ideal meetings destination.
