Meeting Planners

Every meeting planner has a goal in mind. Plan a perfect meeting. It is a lofty goal, but not impossible. One of the keys to success is location, location, location. Meeting planners considering Arizona for a meeting for 10 – 500 people should consider Tempe. Our central location gives attendees easy access to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, major attractions and amazing outdoor activities. Tempe’s hotels are well versed in hosting meetings and boast professional, experienced staff, flexible meeting space, comfortable rooms and great ideas to making your next meeting exceptional.

Summer is a great time to enjoy the beautiful scenery in and around Tempe. Despite the heat, summer can be an attractive time for planning a meeting, and planners can take advantage of lower summer rates. Are you looking ahead to next year? Be sure to start planning now to secure the best rates for 2016. As always, the Tempe Tourism Office group sales team is ready to help you with your meeting needs. We hope to hear from you soon.
