Join SME as we host the 2024 SME Annual Conference & Expo. We want to welcome you to Phoenix!
Surrounded by mountain ranges, the Greater Phoenix area encompasses more than 500 square miles of Sonoran Desert and is comprised of 24 total municipalities – each with a distinct set of characteristics, attractions and flavors that offer visitors a unique glimpse at the nation’s fifth-largest city. Arizona’s largest and most cosmopolitan city is framed by rugged terrain, including the red rocks of Papago Park and the signature spine of Camelback Mountain. Restaurants and bars fill adaptively reused buildings in midtown and Arcadia; Mexican food and murals spice up 16th Street; and vintage shopping and nightlife flourish in the Melrose District. From speakeasies and hipster coffee bars to hyper-local retail and Sunday Funday brunch, Arizona’s capital city has something to offer.
