Aptly nicknamed The Natural State, Arkansas is well known for its diverse geography, from mountains to Class IV rapids to pristine waters. Adventure calls to the outdoorsy types, but Arkansas’ bigger cities call to meetings, too, with its fast-growing metro areas.

Little Rock, the capital and most populous city in the state, offers convenience, affordability and a host of flexible venues including the Statehouse Convention Center downtown, which offers 220,000 square feet of meeting space and has 2,000 hotel rooms within walking distance. In Northwest Arkansas, you’ll find Bentonville, which has two major claims to fame: the mountain biking capital of the world and the home of Walmart’s corporate headquarters, which has helped the city boom into a prime location to both live, play and conduct business.
