Welcome from the Host

Greetings SMART Airports and Regions Conference Attendee,

On behalf of the Greater Ontario Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Ontario International Airport Authority, we want to welcome you! We’re looking forward to your visit 18 – 20 July, 2022, as part of the fast-approaching SMART Airports, Regional Conference and Exhibition in beautiful Ontario, California. Located in the heart of Southern California, Greater Ontario is a region of cultural resources and amenities offering everything from marathon shopping to the great outdoors for golfing, fishing, or hiking. Evening hours enjoy entertainment at Toyota Arena for sporting competitions, live shows, and concerts! And much, much more.

The ease of flying into Ontario International Airport is unmatched. Named the fastest-growing U.S. airport four years running, ONT is the aviation gateway of choice for millions of Southern Californians – combining air service to dozens of major domestic and international destinations with a smooth hassle-free experience, popular restaurants and retailers, and convenient access to the region’s world-class entertainment and recreational amenities.

It is the beginning of many impressions made during your stay with us.

The Ontario Convention Center, a state-of-the-art breathtaking venue, is located less than two miles from the airport. With over 6,000 hotel rooms available and complimentary shuttle service, you’re ready to get down to business or enjoy a leisure vacation experience.

Whether visiting for the first time or returning for another stay, we’re so glad you’re here! The Greater Ontario Convention & Visitors Bureau and Ontario International Airport Authority look forward to your visit and helping you optimize your stay for a memorable experience.
