In Phoenix, meetings are our specialty. And, with a diverse portfolio of conference-friendly accommodations, an award-winning convention center, convenient airport access, a burgeoning downtown scene and access to medical innovation campuses, Phoenix is emerging as a cutting-edge destination for medical meetings.
In recent years, more than $5 billion has been pumped into a 1.7-square-mile zone in the heart of the city, contributing to a downtown growth spurt that has seen the development of office space, shops, restaurants, hotels, and convention and academic facilities.
Greater Phoenix is home to more than 66,000 rooms at more than 480 hotels and resorts, and the city's downtown core offers more than 4,000 hotel rooms, with more on the horizon – all in close proximity to convention and medical campuses.
Additionally, Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport – less than 4 miles, or about a 10-minute drive from the convention center and downtown hotels – is one of the most welcoming and affordable major airports in the United States. The cost of airfare into Phoenix has remained below the national average the past 10 years.
Phoenix Biomedical Campus
Located in the heart of downtown, the Phoenix Biomedical Campus (PBC) is a 30-acre urban medical and bioscience campus offering more than 6 million square feet of academic and clinical space – a natural extension of the learning environment provided by the Phoenix Convention Center within walking distance.
The PBC’s numerous aesthetically striking classrooms and laboratories – all technologically sophisticated and designed for environmental sustainability – offer smart options for off-site meetings and tours.
Medical organizations have the opportunity to make use of the PBC’s University of Arizona Center for Simulation and Innovation. This center includes an operating room, control room, and briefing rooms, and the Arizona Telemedicine Center, which boasts an amphitheater with HD videoconferencing capabilities.
Additionally, the PBC offers access to a roster of speakers who are experts in medical training, research technology and patient care as well as pre-approved, HCP-compliant meeting packages
A premier and dynamic environment for research activities, the PBC contains among the highest concentrations of research scientists and complementary research professionals in the region, providing firms with unprecedented opportunities for growth and collaborative efforts with industry leaders. And nowhere else in the region can such a talented mix of doctors, researchers, innovators, educators, allied health professionals and thought leaders all be found at one address.
