Convenient Location. Intimate Setting.
Flexibility and proximity. Those are the hallmarks of the John B. Hynes Veterans Memorial Convention Center. Outside, the streets of Boston's Back Bay bustle with activity. Inside you'll find all the elements required to achieve highly successful, productive meetings and events - superior facilities, a user-friendly layout, plus state-of-the-art amenities and service.
Of course, the Hynes also offers something no other convention center can: an intimate urban setting in one of the most desirable tourist destinations in the world. Its convenient location - just a short ride from Logan airport, accessible to major roadways and public transportation - makes the Hynes an easy day trip for any East Coast visitor.
It has come to our attention that some event attendees have been contacted by third party providers seeking to book attendees' hotel reservations at reduced rates. Please be advised that no third party providers have been authorized by IBC or the contracted hotel to provide such services, and any representations to the contrary should be considered fraudulent. All reservations should be made directly with the above hotel by calling directly to the number listed above. Under no circumstances should you provide personal information or credit card details to any such third parties. IBC disclaims responsibility for any losses or complications arising out of attempted hotel bookings by attendees through third party providers.
Travelers may fly into Logan International Airport, drive via major interstate highways I-90, I-95 or I-93 which are just two minutes from the convention centers, or take the train or bus from and to South Station. Getting to Boston is a convenient and stress-free aspect of the BPI experience.
