Santa Fe Strengthens Creativity and Innovation as First UNESCO City in the United States

A UNESCO-designated City of Craft and Folk Art, Santa Fe belongs to a select group of renowned international cities. The group of UNESCO Creative Cities are chosen by application for innovation, investment and community in a range of arts and creativity.  From cooking pots and water containers crafted in clay by Native American tribes a thousand years ago to modern-day decorative items and intricate jewelry crafted in textiles, metal and wood, Santa Fe welcomes, strengthens and grows arts and artists in our community. We were the first city designated as a Creative City in the United States, in 2005, and we were appointed for our Craft and Folk Art community.

Meeting Planner Testimonials

The entire staff at the SFCCC is by far the best team I have worked with during my 13 years in the conference business. The sales team is professional and does all they can do to meet our needs. The account representatives assigned to our group over the years is always responsive and starts with Yes as their answer to our many and varied questions. The on-site crew is dependable and timely in our requests from the hundreds of attendees we interact with during our conferences. I can whole-heartedly recommend the SFCCC for your next event.
