Conferences in Boston – a city of contrasts

Is your meeting or conference taking place in Boston? Are you on the hunt for an event venue or suitable conference hotel in one of the United States' oldest cities?

This metropolis is not only the most populous city in New England – it's also the storied capital of the state of Massachusetts on the north-eastern US East Coast.

The Greater Boston Area is home to, among others, the world-leading Harvard University, founded in 1636. The MIT – Massachusetts Institute of Technology is also located in Cambridge, MA. This suburb was named after the English city in which Boston's Founding Fathers studied.

A wealth of history and tradition, but also relaxed urban living, innovation and progress make Boston a city of contrasts. The venerable Beacon Hill neighbourhood on the one hand and the achingly hip South End on the other. Historic terraced houses next to modern skyscrapers. Historic landmarks and sights, modern conference hotels, congress centers and institutes – Boston is steeped in history, elegant and at the same time trendy and modern. Reminiscent of a European city in many ways, you are also left no doubt that this is a typical American metropolis.
