About Raleigh

The first thing many visitors say about Greater Raleigh is, "It's so green here." Well, that phrase takes on a whole new meaning with the area's renewed commitment to sustainability. From the Raleigh Convention Center, one of the few Silver LEED-certified conference centers in the country, to the world-class universities and companies seeking environmentally-friendly breakthroughs, Greater Raleigh offers a smart, green meeting environment.

Known for historic landmarks and burgeoning cosmopolitan offerings – arts, festivals, sports and shopping – Greater Raleigh is the 'can't miss' cultural and entertainment center of the Southeast. Greater Raleigh has recently completed more than $3 billion in redevelopment, and the area, which is constantly praised in the press as a top area to live, work and play, has now become a premier place to host a meeting or event.
