The Plaza was built not only to serve as government offices, but as a center of arts, culture and community activity. The New York State Museum (the largest State Museum in the country), the Empire State Art Collection and the Empire State Performing Arts Center (known as The Egg for its unusual and distinctive design) are all contained at the Plaza. In addition, you will be able to visit the NYS Capitol as well as the Albany Institute of History & Art.

Green Meetings

Green Meeting

You have the power to make a difference…. start by adopting a few common sense policies that will not compromise your experience…it will make you feel good knowing you have contributed to part of your conference’s success by leaving a smaller “carbon footprint”. If available, please make sure to recycle as much as possible in your hotel room, catered functions, registration and on the exhibit floor. Paperless, paperless, paperless whenever possible. If conference mobile apps are available, utilize as much as you can. Ask the housekeeping department not to change the sheets and towels daily unless requested by you. In addition, ask the hotel not to replace the amenities daily unless they are gone. Before leaving your sleeping room for the day shut blinds and turn down the heat/air conditioning during the day in rooms while attendees are gone. Utilize public or hotel transportation as much as possible….better yet walk if you can. For additional information on how you and/or your meeting can make a difference click here.
