All it takes is one look at a map to see why Springfield presents a supremely
“attendable” location.
It is an attractive, interest-filled destination that is close to the
geographic center of America. It’s moderate climate, central location, affordability
and ease of access will help ensure good attendance for your meeting or event.
Population

Climate
A distinct change of seasons, a pleasant change of pace. Located
midway between the Continental Divide and the Atlantic Ocean,
the Springfield area offers what is known as a “continental
climate.” That means cold, rather dry winters, and warm, humid
summers. But if there’s one thing that remains a constant, it is
that our conditions are constantly changing. As they say here in
the Midwest, “If you don’t like the weather, wait a few minutes.”
The best plan is to check the current forecast on our website,
or ask the SCVB for advice on what to expect and what kind of
dress is recommended for the specific time period of your event.
