Five Places to Take Your Meeting Outdoors

Yes, Tucson has great ballrooms and conference spaces, but why not get out under the sun?

With an average of 350 days of sunshine a year and mild temperatures in spring, summer, and fall, you can free yourself from traditional conference rooms and indoor meeting venues. Hold your events outside where you can enjoy great weather and beautiful views surrounding Tucson. Here are some scenic spots that are perfect for your next meeting.
