For decades, Branson has been known as an ideal location for family vacations and leisure groups, hosting millions of visitors each year. Now, Branson is extending the same warm welcome to the attendees of meetings and conventions. In the fall of 2007, the Branson Convention Center, with 220,000 gross sq. ft., opened, providing the perfect venue for larger business meetings, state and regional association conventions, trade shows and fabulous themed banquets.
This exciting new development has been carefully planned to ensure that bringing your group to Branson is simple and enjoyable. The Hiltons of Branson manages two hotels in the Branson Landing area and the city owned Convention Center. All three facilities are located on the shores of Lake Taneycomo with 100 upscale shops, a dozen eclectic restaurants and lounges plus two marinas, all within walking distance.
In addition to the new Branson Convention Center, there are 26 hotels in Branson offering meeting and banquet space on-site. Free-standing function space is available at the Tri-Lakes Center, the Keeter Center, three golf clubhouses and at a number of area theaters and restaurants. Take advantage of the beautiful scenery and plan an outdoor gathering at Dogwood Canyon, or one of our lovely parks.
Branson’s first AAA Diamond resort, Chateau on the Lake Resort & Spa features 43,500 square feet of meeting space, including an elegant 32,000 square foot ballroom. The hotel has 301 guest rooms, panoramic views of Table Rock Lake and the Spa Chateau offering 10 treatment rooms, exotic European therapies, yoga, Pilates and much more.
Big Cedar Lodge tucked into the wooded hillsides of the Ozark Mountains with incredible views of Table Rock Lake is a breathtaking resort inclusive of 246 unique accommodations, 19,427 square feet of meeting space in the Grandview Conference Center, a full-service marina, spa, special events and numerous outdoor activities including hiking and horseback riding.
The Radisson Hotel Branson offers 472 spacious rooms and suites and is centrally located within walking distance of many restaurants, theaters and shopping.
With more than 18,000 hotel, motel and nightly condo rental guest rooms, Branson is well equipped to handle convention groups of all sizes.
Considering the wide range of world-class live entertainment, award-winning theme parks, abundant shopping in more than 300 retail shops and outlet stores, 250+ restaurants, a dozen unique museums and exhibits and many one-of-a-kind facilities and attractions, Branson offers attendees plenty of options when your meetings are not in session.
Blend these unique man-made characteristics with those crafted by Mother Nature - three pristine lakes (with more than 1,000 miles of shoreline) for fishing and boating, surrounded by wooded foothills providing a perfect setting for 200 holes of championship golf - and you have the makings for an unequaled meeting and convention destination offering something for everyone.
Visitors can relax and be themselves in Branson. Our friendly, small town atmosphere creates a surprisingly personal experience that will long be remembered. It’s comfortable here, casual and safe, and it won’t break your budget.
