Discover why Albany is beyond conventional!
Albany has been hosting meetings since 1609. You could say meetings are part of our heritage and they are definitely part of our culture. Located at the crossroads of the Northeast, Albany is easily accessible by plane, train, or automobile and is a short jaunt from major metropolitan areas such as Boston, New York City and Montreal.

From our bustling downtown along the Hudson River to our booming tech corridor uptown, Albany is a city on the rise, and that growth has spurred brand new meeting venues, hotels, restaurants, and businesses.
