Why Choose BUF?

Welcome to the
Unexpected Buffalo

“I’m just gonna put this out there: I love my city. And I love showing it off to meeting planners. I love sharing a cup of coffee at a café on Elmwood Avenue. I love concerts at Canalside, wings at the Anchor Bar, sunsets at Wilkeson Pointe, biking the Outer Harbor Trail and relaxing over beers at Big Ditch Brewery. And yeah, I love Niagara Falls.  It’s my go to spot when I really want to impress folks from out-of-town.”

“And when it comes to conventions and conferences, there’s never been a better time to meet in the BUF. We’ve been rebuilding our city with people like you in mind. We’ve got a ton of new hotels and restaurants, craft breweries, distilleries and food trucks. And our waterfront rocks all year round.  Now, I know what you’re thinking – ‘Well, of course you love Buffalo, you’re the Unexpected Buffalo.’ And that’s true, I guess. But I’ll bet you anything if you come to Buffalo for a site visit with my buddy Mike Even and his team you’ll leave loving this place just as much as me.”
