The cultural and recreational resources of the Winston-Salem area also make it a prime destination for national and regional groups and conventions. The area’s attractiveness also resulted in a decision by the Italian Olympic Committee to make Winston-Salem its primary U.S. training site for the 1996 Olympic Games.
There are also several first-rate private-meeting locations including Graylyn Conference Center, the former estate of an Reynolds American, Inc. chief executive. Graylyn is consistently rated as one of the 10 best meeting sites in the U.S.
In addition, the city offers many other great meeting venues including the M.C. Benton Convention Center, which offers 90,000 square feet of meeting space.
The Lawrence Joel Veteran’s Memorial (LJVM) Coliseum and Annex offer a wide variety of meeting spaces as well as serving as a venue for basketball, concerts, and hockey games.
The Dixie Classic Fairgrounds and Exhibition hall also offer great services including 31,500 square feet of exhibition space.
Other meeting spaces can be found by visiting the Winston-Salem Convention and Visitor’s Bureau website.
