Academy 2021 Boston

November 3 - November 6, 2021

The Greater Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau, along with the Boston Hospitality Partners are thrilled to welcome Academy 2021 Boston presented by the American Academy of Optometry. A lot has changed here recently, so be prepared to be introduced to a new Boston. Our Waterfront is booming with restaurants and harbor walks, our museums have expanded and our hotels have renovated. But not to worry, our mix of colonial charm and urban sophistication still shines through making Boston a dynamic site for meetings of all kind. 

Even though Boston is one of the largest cities in the country, its accessibility is unparalleled. And while it's easy to  see the sights on foot, Boston also has an excellent public transportation system. In addition to everything within the city limits,  some of Massachusetts' most scenic and historic towns are just a short distance from the city center and its proximity to other must-see sites all around New England, make it one of the country's most diverse and exciting locations.
