An Unrivaled Experience

Wondering what makes the greater Champaign County area Outside of Ordinary? You’ll have to come visit us to see.

It goes beyond the destination, filled with arts and culture, scenic outdoor spaces, local award-winning food, and the University of Illinois. With our renowned Midwest Hospitality and our collection of urban and rural experiences, people can’t stop talking about our community. Maybe that’s why we’re the fastest growing city in Illinois.

Home of the Big Ten’s University of Illinois, Champaign County is an ideal choice for regional gatherings. At a fraction of the cost of larger destinations, Champaign County is home to more than 4,500 hotel rooms and over 240,000 sq. ft. of meeting space, county-wide. Champaign is as diverse as mid-size towns come. We’ve got museums, theatres, boutique shopping, nightlife, fine dining and unparalleled attractions.

We’ll help you on the path to success, providing the tools to get people to your event and make sure the experience is Outside of Ordinary! Check out our Meeting Plan Guide for more information on our services and available spaces!
