Situated in the heart of New York State, Syracuse offers an energizing urban experience paired with the tranquility of picturesque Finger Lakes wine region, making it the perfect host city for your next meeting or event. Attendees will love the accessibility of the destination since Syracuse, NY is at the crossroads of two major interstates, and located within a short four-hour drive of 10 major North American markets (home to about 80 million people). Syracuse’s Hancock International Airport also offers non-stop service to 21 cities.
Syracuse not only boasts an amazing location, it has the facilities that can accommodate your event or meeting. Home to award-winning chefs, international theater companies, and trophy-winning hockey team, the SMG-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. A 50-million dollar restoration of the New York State Fairgrounds and brand new Exposition Center provide planners with 110,000 square feet of clear-span space. Beautiful Parks, the iconic Carrier Dome, a lakefront amphitheater, and SRC Arena make it easy to do your thing, offering opportunities for unique events and sporting competitions.
Attendees will enjoy relaxing in award-winning accommodations after a busy day on the tradeshow floor. There are 600 sleeping rooms within walking 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.

"As always, I am personally grateful for the effort and support from you and your team; I SO wish that we had not been reassigned to Region 15 – there is no comparison to the facility and service that we had here in Syracuse."
