Phoenix Convention Center
Many of my guests are here on conferences held at the Convention Center. They are looking for a less expensive, more authentic experience nearby away from the noisy downtown scene. It's a 10 minute drive or 15 minute bike ride.
if you love good classical music (as well as other types), this is a great venue
The 24-acre Phoenix Convention Center, in the heart of Downtown Phoenix, has been hosting national and regional conventions and trade shows as well as consumer events and theatrical productions since it opened in 1972.
