Screen Shot 2016-03-11 at 3.38.38 PMCincinnati USA has achieved Multiple Venue Possibilities (MVP) status with hosting sports-oriented events of every type and size. From the three professional venues situated on its scenic downtown riverfront to more than 150 diverse sports locations throughout the area, this city’s lineup is second to none… That’s because Cincinnati is steeped in sports. It is hometown to the world’s first professional baseball team as well as the nation’s oldest professional tennis tournament, the Western & Southern Open, played in its city of origin.

Cincinnati knows how to roll out the red carpet too. Just ask organizers of the 2015 MLB All-Star Game about the seasoned event specialists and volunteers who teamed together to host a truly major league success.

With two convention centers, five entertainment districts and countless shopping and dining options, attendees will have plenty of options for work and play sessions. Cincinnati’s compact layout puts downtown meeting, hotel and entertainment options just steps apart. If you’re looking for a home field for your next sports event, put Cincinnati USA high on your draft list.

“Cincinnati’s done the best job we’ve seen so far!   

–Rob Manfred, MLB Commissioner, after the 2015 All-Star Game
