When it comes to meetings and conventions, the time to meet in the BUF is now. We’re the destination that Anthony Bourdain dubbed “weirdly wonderful” and that Lonely Planet named among their ‘Best in Travel’ for 2020.

Over the past several years, Buffalo has been pulling itself up by its bootstraps and reshaping, reinvigorating and revitalizing what’s been here the whole time. Discover the destination that’s been a best kept secret for years and find remarkable hotels and meeting spaces, endless entertainment along our surging waterfront, a restaurant scene that is so beyond chicken wings, and much more to do once your work day is over.
