Choosing the right city for your event can be a difficult task.
With budget constraints, travel logistics and the sheer number of choices available, it can be easy to default to a larger, more-familiar city to host your event. However, it’s the tier-two cities that prove to be a treasure trove of experiences that are out of the ordinary, and they’re often more accommodating and affordable than their larger counterparts. And while El Paso is known for its friendliness, authentic Mexican food and being one of the safest cites in the U.S., it’s quickly becoming America’s next great meeting, event and tournament hub.
The Sun City Is Shining
With over half a billion dollars in downtown renovations, El Paso’s experiencing unprecedented changes! You’ll be stunned when you see what’s new. The return of our vintage streetcars. An art-filled city square. An award-winning Triple-A ballpark and USL soccer stadium. New shops. New restaurants. Plus new, state-of-the-art hotels are here, doubling our number of rooms within walking distance of our convention center!
Maximize Your Money
El Paso delivers on a budget in ways other cities can’t, like offering lower rates for nearly every aspect of your event. Hotel rooms, event spaces, food and beverage, transportation, entertainment…it’s all more affordable here. You’d be hard-pressed to find another tier-two city that strives to make your event as cost-effective and successful as possible as El Paso. DMOs in these cities are also generally open to putting in the extra work needed to obtain grants or other perks, giving you the opportunity to make your event even better!
How can your event be unique if you’re hosting it in the same city as everyone else? There are only so many tweaks you can make to the menu and program to differentiate your event for your attendees. If you truly want to deliver an exceptional experience, host your event in El Paso and provide something unexpected and out of the ordinary. More often than not, a unique city like El Paso equals a unique event.
