Accessibility & Transportation

With its convenient Northeast location, 15 percent of the nation’s population is within a 300-mile proximity to Providence. Rhode Island T.F. Green International Airport (PVD) in Warwick is the closest airport. Easily accessed via Interstate 95, Providence is a 50-minute drive from Boston and a three-hour drive to New York City.

Rhode Island Convention Center

Accessibility and ease are the hallmarks of the Rhode Island Convention Center (RICC). Centrally located in the heart of Providence and just off Interstate 95, the RICC is within one mile of 3,000 hotel rooms. It is connected via skybridge to the 14,000-seat Amica Mutual Pavilion on one side and to the 564-room Omni Providence Hotel on the other. The Omni is, in turn, connected to the Providence Place mall.

Amica Mutual Pavilion

Known to locals as "The AMP PVD," the 14,000-seat Amica Mutual Pavilion (formerly the Dunkin' Donuts Center) is home to the AHL Providence Bruins and the Big East Providence College Friars. The arena hosts sporting events, major concerts, family shows and trade shows. The venue offers ample parking and is connected via skybridge to the RI Convention Center.
