WELCOME TO RALEIGH-DURHAM!
This is the destination you’ve been waiting for, because it’s so many destinations in one. Come experience Greater Raleigh for yourself!
Live it up! Come to NAAEE and discover what Forbes, Kiplinger’s, Esquire, Money, and Rolling Stone have already found out: Raleigh is an award-winning city in which to work, play, and visit.
Easy access! With the newly-renovated Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) offering a great selection of low-cost flights, getting here is easy.
Enjoy the scenery! Raleigh’s lush 152 miles of greenways and walking paths, 43 parks and lakes, and numerous golf courses are great ways to relax and make Greater Raleigh a viable location for NAAEE’s attendees. And the Blue Ridge Mountains and our wonderful coastal areas are just a few hours away offering great options for pre and post conference trips.
More green! In addition to the convention center’s LEED certification, in partnership with CREE Raleigh is the first “LED city” in the world. The City is also one of three US cities selected to pilot Project Get Ready – a program designed to prepare and promote electric vehicle infrastructure. Green initiatives abound here as we work hard to protect our environment.
Have fun! When the meetings are over, you’ll find over 125 eateries and pubs, 40 unique galleries, and 4 museums within a short distance of the convention center. Community wide you’ll find 23 free attractions.
There’s no better time than NOW! Greater Raleigh has undergone over three billion dollars in development and renovations including a new City Plaza (home to many special events and a wonderful place to relax after meeting), the R Line (complimentary hybrid electric shuttles that run continuously in our downtown area), a new visually stunning NC Museum of Art, world class chefs opening new restaurants weekly. Raleigh keeps getting better and better just in time for NAAEE’s arrival.
