Let's face it: planning a tournament, competition or exhibition shouldn't be a nail biter. So when you're considering options for your next event, talk to the pros at the Peoria Area Convention and Visitors Bureau.
The stats for our area speak for themselves. The Peoria Area boasts a central location, on both a state and nationwide level, and is accessible via major interstates and regional airports. With over 4,500 hotel rooms, your crowds can enjoy comfortable accommodations - many near our outdoor venues for soccer, baseball and softball or the indoor venues for cheerleading, basketball or volleyball tournaments. The cities of Peoria and East Peoria each boast riverside downtowns with dining, shopping, festivals, nightlife and culture – providing plenty of options for fun once the day’s competition is done. These stats, combined with more affordable rates than most major metro markets, make Peoria a winning choice for any group.
The Peoria Area hosts major sporting events in a number of venues year-round. The NJCAA Women’s Basketball Division II National Championship, IHSA Boys State Basketball Tournament and the NSA “B” North World Series are a few of the major events that see success in the Peoria Area, year after year. So whether it's golf, gymnastics or swimming competitions, your sporting event can truly PLAY in the Peoria Area!
