Nestled in the United States’ Northwest, Idaho is well-known for its mountainous landscapes, lakes and more. For meetings and events, it’s best known for being home to the city of Boise, which is Idaho’s largest city and the capital. 

Ideal for small- to mid-size groups, the city of Boise has much to offer in the way of meeting venues and culture. Centrally located Boise Centre is the state’s largest convention center. The facility is located just steps away from the Basque Block. Boise is home to one of the largest concentrations of Basque populations per capita in the U.S. (The Basque region in Spain is an area that straddles parts of northern Spain and southwestern France.) The Basque Block in downtown Boise is where the rich history and heritage of the Basque people can be explored, and can even be used for special events.
