About Boise

Boise is Idaho’s state capital and largest city, with an increasingly vibrant culinary and cultural life. Weather in mid-May can run the gamut but is usually dominated by warm days and cool nights. If you plan to arrive early and/or stay late, there’s plenty to do in and around the Boise area.


The Boise Airport is served by a number of regional and major airlines and is only 15 minutes from Boise Centre.
Boise is located on Interstate 84. The most convenient route to Boise Centre is to take the I-184 spur into downtown. Boise is 429 miles from Portland, 495 miles from Seattle and 345 miles from Salt Lake city.


There are several lodging options near the Boise Centre. We recommend getting your reservations early if you want to stay within short walking distance of the conference. There is no official Idaho Healthcare Summit hotel.
