Bigger Is Better (For Everyone)
Book now at any of the hotels near the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center and you will find yourself only minutes from the front doors of the Northeast’s largest convention center. Though the lot that it’s located on was first sought out to be a new stadium for the Patriots, it was instead selected to be the home for a new convention center for the city. The decision was prompted by the exit of the Macworld trade show in the 90s due to a lack of available space. In order to attract bigger customers and more business for the city, the center was designed to house far larger exhibitions than could be previously booked in Boston.
With three main bays that can either be connected into a single space or separated for three different events at the same time, it succeeded far better than expected. By 2007, 1.9 million attendees came to the center, booking more than a million nights in nearby hotels, boosting the local economy, and even pulling up the numbers at its smaller neighbor, the Hynes Convention Center. Today, it is home to big name events like the PAX East Convention, held annually in the spring, the New England International Auto Show, and the Experimental Biology 2015 Annual Meeting. Even the future is bright for the BCEC, with a two billion dollar expansion planned and plans to run a diesel multiple unit service to Back Bay to connect you to all the great hotels and in that area.
