Home - Blog - 5 Idealistic North Carolina Cities for Meetings and Events

Welcome to North Carolina – home of the Tar Heels, large estates, and towns even sweeter than the potatoes they are known for. Whether you’re looking to host an event in a large city like Charlotte, or aiming towards smaller and less crowded areas – North Carolina is a great place to call ‘home’ for events and meetings of all sizes and varieties!

1. Charlotte, North Carolina Event Venues

Often referred to as the ‘Queen City‘, North Carolina’s largest city Charlotte, is the second largest financial hub in the United States, and often mocked as the ‘city with no history’. With a large international airport with multiple airline hubs and an ‘uptown’ (downtown) that is known for its beauty and cleanliness – hosting an event of any size in Charlotte, North Carolina just makes sense!

2. Raleigh, North Carolina Event Venues

The ‘City of Oaks’, and home to North Carolina’s capital, Raleigh North Carolina is well known for two things: Research Triangle (a bio-tech and research park) and the city’s commitment to green space and parks. Perhaps not as oft thought of in comparison to its sister city Charlotte, Raleigh is quite the hot spot for event and meeting venues.
