Why Meeting Planners Love New York's Capital District!
Albany's location and access to an International Airport make the Capital District area a popular location for conventions, trade shows, and conferences. New York City is an easy commute by plane, train or car - as is Boston and Montreal. In addition, the Capital City's urban attractions, coupled with outlying suburban and rurl areas, ensure many great options that appeal to meeting planners and attendees alike!
