Gathering with purpose: meetings and conventions

With combined hotel meeting space of more than 20,000 sq. ft. plus individual venues that offer up to 59,000 sq. ft., the small city of Kalispell rises to the occasion for meetings and conventions of all sizes and varieties. But meetings here aren’t typical. When attendees step outside Glacier Park International Airport (directly connected to hubs around the country), they are greeted with expansive views of mountains and that big Montana sky and are minutes away from rivers, lakes and trails. A 10-minute drive into town will have your guests at the doorstep of Kalispell’s lodging (even closer if staying at the hotel airport), shopping and dining locales. And the event venues bring their own change of “meeting scenery,” from historic homes and museums to local galleries, and outdoor venues with 360-degree Flathead Valley views. Kalispell is also home to an indoor arena, premier equestrian center, fairgrounds and motorsports facility that offer flexible space and modern amenities that our local professionals can transform however casual or lavish your event.
