What Planners are Saying


Don’t just take our word for it – listen to your fellow planners and hear about their experiences in Boise.

Botany 2023

I would tell another organization not to hesitate to hold a convention at Boise Centre. It has been the right size event venue for our group of 950 attendees, the food is wonderful, and the staff are exceptional. Being in Boise’s walkable downtown close to hotels, pubs, coffee shops and the riverwalk has been great.”


– Heather Cacanindin
Executive Director, Botanical Society of America

The Freeman Company

After my first trip to Boise in November 2022, I immediately got it! I immediately fell in love with the idea of taking over the city and treating downtown Boise as our venue.  Boise Centre could be considered a “boutique convention center.”  It is in the heart of downtown, has 86K square feet of convention and meeting space and is just the right size for more intimate events, and opens up to the downtown plaza and restaurant corridor (8th Street).”

– Sherry Huss
Meeting Planner and Head of Community, The Freeman Company


“The expanded facility was perfect for us. We had 1500 registrants here… Boise has a great vibe for members. They like the walkability, they like being in a small city.”

I’ve heard nothing but good reviews… this is a perfect venue for us.”

-Jeff Engle, MD

Big Sky Conference

“We entertained offers from a number of other cities through the process, but it was all the other things that go into it that Boise offered that really made the difference.  Everything is so connected and Downtown is so nice, so clean. And there’s so many different things to do and see, and different bars and restaurants for people to hang out. When our fans come into town, they can feel apart of something. They are not just showing up to a basketball game.”

– Tom Wistrcill
Big Sky Commissioner
