Every year Boston is host to many tradeshow events both large and small. The Boston Convention and Exhibition Center is the largest exhibition center in the Northeast United States, with some 516,000 square feet of contiguous exhibition space. The John B. Hynes Veterans Memorial Convention Center, though smaller then the newer Boston Convention Center, is still impressively sized and located in the heart of downtown Boston’s most glamourous shopping district, thereby catering to business tourism in the City.
