Plan Your Visit

Defined by an innovative spirit and known as the “City of First's”, Springfield is an unexpected surprise for meeting planners. This is the birthplace of basketball (and home of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame) and the first commercially sold vehicle. Reflecting the city’s innovative spirit is a vibrant destination with first-class restaurants, big-name entertainment, and lots of attractions and activities to see and do.

Western MA is at the center of one of the most culturally rich and historic areas in the country, which makes Springfield an ideal setting for your event's activities. Start right at the MassMutual Center where, in addition to outstanding exhibit and meeting space, there is an 8,000 seat arena that is the site of big-name concerts, family and sporting events. Restaurants of every type of cuisine imaginable, both close to the Center and around the area. The historical, cultural and entertainment options are rich and varied – everything from American colonial historical attractions to world-class college art museums, amusement parks, outlet malls, antique shows and more.
