Think about Buffalo for a moment. Are you thinking about snow and rust? Then your impression of our city needs an upgrade. It’s time for you to meet the unexpected Buffalo. Old and new come together seamlessly to create the perfect meeting venue in Buffalo, a city steeped in nearly 200 years of cultural traditions and reinvigorated with a renewed civic pride and energy. If you’re a first-time visitor, be prepared for an unexpected experience featuring brand new hotels and welcoming convention center conveniently located in close proximity to inventive restaurants, trendy craft breweries and cocktail bars, one-of-a-kind tours, architectural landmarks and our booming waterfront.
Centrally located, the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center caters to your every need with unparalleled customer service, accessibility and attentiveness, with affordability at its core. The 110,000 square foot layout provides the ultimate flexibility no matter how large or small the event. The in-house food and beverage team consistently receive rave reviews for their delicious culinary creations.
With an already existing roster of stellar downtown hotel properties, Buffalo offers several exciting, upscale additions. The high-tech, 68-room Curtiss Hotel is now open in the heart of the city. This $20 million restoration of a historic landmark features a swanky rooftop lounge, fine dining and a one-of-a-kind spa paired with an all-season Roman hot spring. The Westin is 116-rooms of pure bliss. Furnished with luxurious amenities, services and even a robotic butler, you’ll feel right at home. The 205-room Buffalo Marriott HARBORCENTER is steps away from the home of the Buffalo Sabres and one of the cities greatest year-round cultural attractions, Canalside. What’s more, each of these properties are a few short blocks away from the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center making Buffalo an incredibly convenient meeting destination.
When considering a location for your group, what to do AFTER the meeting is almost as important as the meeting itself. In Buffalo, you’ll have it made. Whether you’re looking for a bite to eat or a celebratory beverage following a successful day, there’s no shortage of places to go. Check out Toutant and Marble + Rye for thoughtfully composed cuisine, Big Ditch Brewery and Sato Brewpub for a frosty glass of Buffalo-made beer and Expo for an upscale cafeteria eatery located in the historic Theatre District. If you’re looking for a little adventure with your business, Canalside offers kayaks, stand-up paddleboards and waterbikes (yes, waterbikes) for rent. Depart with your watercraft of choice and head up the Buffalo River for fun in the sun at RiverWorks – a multi-season bar, restaurant and all-ages playground featuring ziplining between historic grain elevators, a two-level ropes course and rockclimbing. And who could leave Buffalo before chowing down at a few spots on the Buffalo Wing Trail. Highlighting twelve of the best purveyors of the city’s world-famous, saucy delicacy, you’ll take a bite from places like Anchor Bar, home of the wing, to Lenox Grill, where they’ve taken specialty sauces into the stratosphere.
The revitalization throughout Buffalo is real and others are taking notice. We’re embracing our historic architecture and adapting it with modern comforts, we’re breaking the norms of contemporary cuisine by blending it with our blue-collar favorites and pioneering new ways to enjoy our place on the Great Lakes. We’ve been hard at work during this renaissance and now we’re ready for company. Come see what we’ve done with the place!
