Hotel & Travel

Known as a hub of innovation with a revolutionary spirit, Boston offers the perfect mix of history and invention. BOMA 2021 will be held at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (BCEC) in the exciting Seaport district, a 21st century neighborhood and commercial real estate marvel. The Seaport is a beacon of all things new and unexpected, designed for the way people live today. It's a home for technology, innovation, art and doing things a little differently. BOMA's conference hotels are located in the Seaport just steps from the BCEC.

Getting to Boston

Boston is easily accessible by air, rail and bus. Once you arrive, you'll find that getting from here to there in "America's Walking City" takes no time at all. 

Boston Logan International Airport, is just minutes from the Seaport District and downtown Boston. No city in the U.S. delivers faster travel times between the airport and its hotels than Boston. Take an eight minute taxi, Uber or Lyft ride from Logan Airport to your BOMA hotel, or use the MBTA's Silver Line to and from the airport. The Silver Line is complimentary from Logan Airport and stops at the Seaport/World Trade Center just across the street from the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (BCEC). Shuttle services and other transportation options are also available to and from Logan Airport. Learn more here.
