Providence, RI (PRWEB) August 8, 2008
MeetingSource.com (http://www.meetingsource.com) is proud to feature Albany meeting facilities and highlight the Albany CVB as a new featured meeting destination for business functions, meetings and conventions in New York.
A new Albany Convention Center, now being planned, would add even more meeting facilities in Albany and make it that much more competitive for convention site selection.
"With its convenient location, competitive room rates and wide variety of function sites, Albany already has a wealth of qualities meeting planners' desire. It should do well on MeetingSource.com," said Laura Straub, an editor at the site.
In late 2008, MeetingSource.com will introduce a new site selection tool that will help planners sort through destinations based on their top criteria. One of the factors that would no doubt help its results would be the completion of a new Albany Convention Center.
Since Albany County contains 6,000 hotel rooms and several hundred thousand square feet of meeting space, accommodations and function rooms are always available.
The numerous treasures of New York's Capital region catch the eye and capture the heart. While still maintaining a vibrant culture scene, Albany has a natural beauty that larger cities lack. The Hudson River runs through downtown and ski mountains are just a few miles away.
Easily accessible by air or road, Albany is ideally located for meetings and events both near and far. For visitors traveling abroad, Albany's International airport has 25 non-stop destinations, due to a recently completed multi-million dollar redevelopment project.
The Albany County Convention and Visitors Bureau (ACCVB) (http://www.albany.org) will personally assist convention planners. By offering clients some of the best meeting facilities in New York, the Albany CVB can extend creative options from a professional view for a friendly, effective experience.
"For almost four centuries, New York's Capital city has been hosting meetings that shaped the nation and continue to mold its future. History, heritage and affordable hospitality define our places and spaces. Albany is an amazing discovery!" said Michele Vennard, CEO and President of the ACCVB.
