Event Transportation in Boston, Massachusetts
Called the “Hub of New England” Boston, Massachusetts is a popular, multicultural port town. Known for its rich history and friendly charm, Boston is one of the best event destinations on the East Coast, a great blend of stylish sophistication and traditional style.
Boston was founded early in our country’s history—in 1630—only ten years after the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock. Over the centuries, Boston grew as a popular port and harbor town. The city is almost completely surrounded by water, with the Atlantic Ocean on two sides and the Charles River running around the back and offers many water activities, venues and views.
Over 18 million people visit the city each year for events such as the Boston Marathon, Head of the Charles Regatta, Harborfest and Independence Day celebrations. Many people also make their way there for events, conventions and business meetings.
Boston’s famous medical and educational institutions help make it a national center of learning and knowledge. It boasts a thriving economy, and many meetings and conventions boast record-breaking attendance such as:
- Joine Mathematics Meeting (7,000+ attendees)
- International Boston Seafood Show (19,000+ attendees)
- Anime (22,000+ attendees)
- American Physical Society (9,700+ attendees)
- Pediatric Academic Societies (8,400+ attendees)
