The National Road Convention District

Springfield’s National Road Convention District offers unconventional experiences with impressive, state-of-the-art event facilities that can host up to 1500 people, premium lodging at refreshingly competitive prices, and a simplified event planning process that starts with one call to the Greater Springfield Convention and Visitors Bureau.

We can accommodate day-long special events or overnight and multi-day conventions: all in a walkable, revitalized downtown environment where visitors can find everything they want and need to make their stay enjoyable, productive and rewarding.

The National Road Convention District packages all the best that Greater Springfield has to offer, including culturally rich arts and entertainment options, outdoor activities that range from the relaxing to the exhilarating, a robust technology infrastructure, a host of dining options and an exceptionally welcoming business community ready to play its role in the satisfaction of your members and attendees.

We’re no more than 90 miles from three major international airports and sit in proximity to three major interstates, so—just like the National Road itself—we can conveniently bring together guests from around the region or across the country to provide an unparalleled event experience.
