Huntsville, AL Meeting Planning Overview

Huntsville, AL | Meeting Planning Overview

The high-tech city of Huntsville, which sprawls at the foot of a mountain in North Alabama, is equally at home in the 19th century or the 21st. Huntsville's tourist attractions reflect the heritage of Alabama's first English-speaking city, the strife of the American Civil War and the accomplishments of America's rocket scientists. The city is nicknamed "The Rocket City" for its close history with U.S. space missions. Huntsville has been important in developing space technology since the 1950s. As the second-largest metropolitan area in Alabama, Huntsville, greater Madison County and its surrounding communities are a testament to the Southern traditions of hospitality, curiosity and fun. From the down-home comfort of Madison to the history and high-tech bustle of Huntsville, there’s never a dull moment in our quickly developing region. It’s not hard to find a nearby quiet corner, either.
