At the Convention Center, we like doing business with you. But we also want you to enjoy our beautiful and exciting destination during your stay. Our partnership with Visit Buffalo Niagara (VBN) enables us to provide helpful visitor information, promotional materials, and on-site convention services. We also partner with the VBN to develop proposal packages and executive site inspections. Together, we simplify the planning process, making it easier for you to do business with us. You’ll find the links to the right full of helpful information; as always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
