Plan Your Meeting in Syracuse

Situated in the heart of New York State, Syracuse offers an energizing urban experience paired with the tranquility of the picturesque Finger Lakes wine region, making it the perfect host city for your next meeting or event. Attendees love the accessibility of our location — positioned at the crossroads of two major interstates, Syracuse is also situated within a short four-hour drive of 10 major North American markets. Syracuse’s Hancock International Airport offers direct service to over 25 major markets including Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Las Vegas, Minneapolis, Nashville, New York City, Philadelphia, Orlando, Raleigh-Durham, Tampa and Washington D.C. Major air carriers include Allegiant, Breeze, Delta, American Airlines, JetBlue, Southwest, United Airlines and Frontier.

Syracuse not only boasts an amazing location, it also has the facilities to accommodate your next meeting or event. Home to award-winning chefs, international theater companies and the trophy-winning Syracuse Crunch hockey team, the ASM-managed Oncenter Convention Complex boasts over 200,000 square feet of meeting, theater, arena and exhibition space. The facility also served as host to the 2018 United States Bowling Conference Open Championships. The Exposition Center at the New York State Fairgrounds provides planners with 110,000 square feet of clear-span space. And SRC Arena offers 60,000 square feet, a six-lane track, three flexible courts and meeting rooms on the Onondaga Community College campus. Beautiful Parks, the Dome at Syracuse University, a lakefront amphitheater and flexible meeting spaces make it easy to accommodate unique events and sporting competitions.  

Attendees can relax in award-winning accommodations after a busy day on the tradeshow floor. There are 700 committable sleeping rooms within a short distance of the convention center, including the Marriott Syracuse Downtown, awarded Best City Center Historic Hotel by Historic Hotels of America. There are also 2,100 committable rooms within a ten-minute drive of our facilities.
