Erie's New Bayfront Landing Aims to Bring More Conventions and More Events to Northwest Pennsylvania

Erie Events is proud to announce the Bayfront Landing — Erie’s premier convention and waterfront district. The newly named convention and events complex includes the Bayfront Convention Center, Sheraton® Erie Bayfront Hotel and the Courtyard® Marriott Erie Bayfront Hotel. The new branding initiative aims to help showcase Erie’s beautiful Bayfront properties as the destination for a wide variety of events — all year long.

“We have something truly unique here in Erie,” says Gus Pine, general manager of the Bayfront Convention Center. “By positioning our convention center and hotels as one beautiful waterfront district destination, we hope to appeal to even more event organizers throughout the state and region.” Pine says as more events come to Erie, more local businesses will see the economic impact. “We have state-of -the-art facilities and award-winning hotels, but we also have a thriving downtown, and year-round sports and activities all in close proximity — something for everyone to enjoy during their stay.”

At the center of Erie’s new Bayfront Landing is the Bayfront Convention Center, northwest Pennsylvania’s largest banquet venue. The center is connected to the award-winning Sheraton® Erie Bayfront Hotel featuring 200 guest rooms and the new Courtyard® Marriott Erie Bayfront Hotel with 192 guest rooms. “We
believe now is the perfect time to seize the bay,” says Pine. “There’s a lot of great things happening right now on Erie’s Bayfront and it’s our goal to make Erie the first choice for event organizers all across the region.”
