Where to Meet

Niagara Falls Convention Center

If you’re seeking a business base of epic proportions, the Niagara Falls Convention Center (NFCC) offers 116,000 square feet (or two football fields) of super modern event space from meeting rooms to business centers. Customized conferences? Bespoke banquets? You bet we’ll have it all to suit your business event needs.

There’s no shortage of alternative bases, too. Niagara Falls USA and its greater region offer myriad venues to host you and your colleagues. Old Falls Street USA (located right outside the NFCC) hosts al-fresco events for up to 5,000 people, while just downriver, the Niagara Power Project – Power Vista offers mod meetings rooms with views overlooking the spectacular Niagara Gorge.

Looking for a venue with a foodie twist? The New York Beer ProjectWoodcock Brothers Brewery and the Freedom Run Winery all offer more intimate venue spaces to host your meetings, team-building events, and chill-out retreats.

Where to Dine

Whether it’s some lunchtime brain food or acclaimed fine dining, Niagara Falls USA can cater to all your clients’ tastes. For the most scenic business lunch, make reservations at the seasonal, Top of the Falls restaurant, which wows with panoramas of the Horseshoe Falls. For a dining room with a different view (think a buzzing gaming hall), the Western Door is a gourmet steakhouse at the Seneca Casino offering some of the most impressive fare in town. And for fun and entertainment, you can’t beat the vibe at Hard Rock Cafe – Niagara Falls USA.

Given its location amid the flourishing farmland of Niagara County, it’s no surprise that Niagara Falls is home to a vibrant farm-to-fork food scene, too. The Niagara Falls Culinary Institute is an ideal spot to gather your bearings on local delights, from dining at its Savor restaurant to indulging in sweet treats from its very own La Patisserie.

Come cocktail hour, you’ll be spoiled for choice, too. From craft beers to local vintages, Niagara Falls USA’s fun bar scene (and 22 wineries and breweries) will keep your glass filled from happy hour to late night.

Where to Play

Time for some downtown downtime? It won’t be a proper business retreat without one. The walkability of Niagara Falls’ downtown corridor means you can reboot into relaxation mode as soon as you’ve closed your laptop. A tip — start off by taking in the views of the awe-inspiring American, Horseshoe, and Bridal Veils Falls and take matters from there.

Lovers of the outdoors can jog, hike, or bike along the magnificent trailheads that span along the Niagara River. If you’re more of an adrenaline junkie, why not buckle up with Rainbow Air Inc., Helicopter Tours, or try a thrilling a jet-boat ride across the Niagara River’s Class V rapids?
