The city offers an array of conference hotels which, along with unique attractions to enjoy afterwards, will ensure that your business trip is enjoyable and unforgettable.
After your conference in Newark, be sure to explore some of the attractions that this intriguing yet relatively unexplored city offers.

In fact, it is the largest collection of cherry blossom trees in the US, boasting 4,300 individual trees.
One of the country’s oldest cities, Newark is home to a vast amount of history waiting to be tapped into after your conference. The New Jersey History Society is a museum housed in a Georgian style building, detailing the history of the city. As an alternative, check out the Thomas Edison National Historic Park, which exhibits the products of one of America’s greatest inventors in style.
