Tacoma Named A Top Convention City

Tacoma is ranked on MeetingSource.com’s list of 12 top convention cities

Cities across the country were ranked on a five-point system with criteria like ease of access, affordability, safety, walkability, and promotional appeal in the large, medium, and small convention categories. Of the 12 cities named, Tacoma ranked fourth in the small convention category.

The Greater Tacoma Convention Center hosts 220 events a year on average, with more than 125,000 attendees. More than 19,000 room nights are confirmed through 2022.

“The unsolicited honor speaks to the hard work that has taken place over the past few years,” said Bennish Brown, president and CEO for Travel Tacoma. “We are now being recognized as a unique destination that appeals to many audiences. We have an incredible waterfront city that delivers a safe, vibrant and convenient experience to meeting planners and their attendees.”
