“I am very happy to attach the signed license agreement for our meeting in 2020. I can’t tell you how much we appreciate all you and your team did to tell us how much our business meant to you. Your city will be a wonderful host.”
Vice President of Meetings and Events
“Every year APTA hosts numerous events in cities throughout North America. Rarely have we felt more welcomed, appreciated and supported than during our time in Charlotte. From city officials to hotel staff, convention center workers to local restaurateurs, transit operators to people on the street – everyone we met or worked with contributed to a truly enjoyable and successful stay. Some APTA members and staff who had never been to Charlotte even talked openly about relocating or retiring to “the Queen City”! Clearly, this is a great city for great events … and so much more.”
Director of Meetings and Conventions
American Public Transportation Association
“I have hosted numerous events at the Charlotte Convention Center over the past ten years and each time the staff goes above and beyond to ensure our attendees have a memorable experience. From catering and security to IT and AV, every staff member is friendly and proactive. The catering team led by Betsy Belcher deployed 1,500 boxed lunches in under 20 minutes and was able to get attendees through the line within minutes. Event Manager, Jamie Hite, made sure every detail was covered and accommodated several last minute changes. We appreciate the center’s continued partnership and look forward to future events.”
Lowe’s Companies, Inc.
"The facility offers great opportunities for meetings, product shows and catering. The staff is very accommodating and after six years of coming to Charlotte both the staff and Southern States personnel know one another well. Our company has another three years contracted so we will have three more opportunities to work together to result in a successful, memorable event."

Southern States Cooperative, Inc.
"Our event in 2016 in Charlotte was an undisputed hit with our attendees and exhibitors! The CVB staff, Charlotte Convention Center Staff and our Hotel contacts worked with us to help us create a great experience for all involved. We held our first hosted evening event for our attendees at the NASCAR Hall of Fame which was an overwhelming success due to the excellent food, the exciting activities and the warm hospitality of all the event staff. What originally was a wild card location has become an instant audience favorite. I am looking forward to working with all the great people in Charlotte again in the near future!"
