Phoenix is the capital city of Arizona and is awash in Big City modern amenities, yet its historic southwestern roots and relaxed small town ambiance remain. From special events to specialty shops, to wine bars and fine art, Phoenix is finding its heart and soul with locally owned businesses. You can catch Artlink’s First Fridays, on the first Friday evening of every month, where all the art galleries, shops, bars and restaurants stay open late and vendors and street performers entertain crowds on Roosevelt Row and beyond.

Phoenix is best known for its resorts, with eye- catching pools, restaurants, spas and golf courses, many have astounding mountain views, especially around Camelback Mountain in the middle of the city. Phoenix also has a reputation as a top-tier destination in the convention market. Located less than 10 minutes from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in Downtown Phoenix, Phoenix Convention Center is an ideal venue for conventions of any size. It provides a spacious, high-tech and client- friendly facility that services nearly 85 percent of all convention requirements. The Greater Phoenix area is full of restaurants, cafés, bakeries and even coffee shops that the locals – and the national media – rave about. Our Southwestern and Mexican restaurants are supremely authentic, our chefs are known around the world, and the views from some of the tables in town are unparalleled.
