Springfield, the 3rd largest City in Massachusetts and the 4th largest in all of New England, is a City of many attributes. It has been known as the “City of Firsts” – a moniker earned through a history of innovation, including America’s first Armory and military arsenal, the first American made automobile and the first radio station, to list just a few. Springfield may be best known for two other innovations – the birthplace of basketball and of Theodor Geisel, better known as “Dr. Seuss”. It is also home to several institutions of higher learning, including Western New England University — a university that is much more than its educational offerings. With a strategic plan of Individual Focus, Global Perspectives, the university’s focus on a personal approach to education sets the road map as it moves into a new decade of the 21st century, having celebrated its centennial year in 2019.

Downtown Springfield lies on the bank of the Connecticut River. The conference hotel is conveniently located in the heart of the city’s downtown, just minutes away the area’s top restaurants, entertainment and attractions. It is in close proximity to the following attractions
