5 Reasons Why Having a Meeting in Little Rock Means You're Always Connected
Staying connected in the meeting and events industry is an essential aspect of a planner’s job. You need to be connected to the CVB team, your attendees, and the venues.
When you’re looking for your next meeting or event destination, Little Rock is as connected as it gets. It’s why Dillard’s, Windstream Communications, and Stephens Inc. call the city home. Little Rock is one of the South’s top convention cities, meaning it has all the perks and amenities you need, people dedicated to making your meeting memorable, and of course, plenty of Southern hospitality.
Little Rock is easy to access both nationally and regionally, and your attendees will be here in a matter of hours by plane. Arkansas is bordered by six states and two major highways, Interstates 30 and 40, making it easy to arrive by car or bus as well. You can also arrive via Amtrak if you want a scenic route into The Natural State.
When you’re looking for your next in-town meeting location, look no further than Little Rock’s Robinson Center and Statehouse Convention Center. These two fantastic venues host tens of thousands of visitors annually.
Both downtown venues are also close to multiple parking structures that are operated by the Little Rock Convention & Visitors Bureau, as well as on the route for the city’s popular METRO streetcar system. Additionally, each is within walking distance of numerous restaurants and local attractions.
Planning your meeting at the Robinson Center? The DoubleTree by Hilton Little Rock is connected to the center and has 288 rooms and 13,000 square feet of meeting space. The airport is only 7 miles away, and there’s a complimentary shuttle for anyone not arriving by car. But if your attendees have their own set of wheels, the two facilities also share an underground parking garage.
Opting for the Statehouse Convention Center? Your attendees will feel right at home at the Little Rock Marriott, which is connected to the center. The hotel has 418 luxurious rooms and more than 40,000 square feet of meeting space. Rooms also come with sweeping views of downtown, or alternatively, the Arkansas River.
Did you know that the Statehouse Convention Center and Robinson Center have complimentary Wi-Fi throughout their facilities? You’ll also find state-of-the-art technology and equipment at both centers, as well as the Doubletree by Hilton Little Rock and Little Rock Marriott. Need help with audiovisual setup?
