1. Explore Outside the Walls

Don't forget to carve out some time for exploration outside of the event. There's a wide variety of things to do in Sioux Falls including shopping, hiking, golfing and more. Create a group experience such as a tapas tour at a few restaurants, or tour one of our breweries. The options are endless, regardless of your interests.

2. Rally a Hospitality Team

We encourage you to reach out to one of our many hospitality teams around Sioux Falls to help make your event extra special. Utilize the services of the CVB, event planners and more to take away the stress of dealing with the details that come with planning an event. Need special catering services? Shuttle transportation? Spouse activities? We'll have you covered here in Sioux Falls.

3. Plan Early

We have beautiful and unique spaces all over the city, including right along the Big Sioux River such as the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown. Venues such as these tend to be very popular choices, so we recommend that you start the planning process early on to ensure that you get what you want. After all, no one wants to settle for anything.

4. Get Downtown

Downtown Sioux Falls is a vibrant hub of activity and entertainment all throughout the year. You will find culinary wonders on every corner such as Parker's Bistro, Breadico, and Oshima. Plan your event around a downtown event like our summer Block Parties, Hot Summer Nites, or Riverfest. We assure you, you won't be disappointed!

5. Find the Perfect Space

Don't always go for the flashy venue, but rather, find the space that is best for your event. Hosting an event in a venue that's not a good match can be detrimental to the flow and energy of the event, so be selective on your space and be open to creativity. Possibilities are endless in spaces such as the Convention Center in terms of decor to make it unique to your group.
