Charlotte’s Got a Lot

Charlotte, The Queen City, will be a fabulous destination for our ESPA members. Our venue, the Westin Charlotte, is in Uptown, in the heart of the city’s hustle and bustle, within short walking distance to a multitude of restaurants, a mixed-use entertainment destination – The EpiCentre, Bank of America Stadium (home to the Carolina Panthers), the Spectrum (home of the Charlotte Hornets), and so much more. Being home to 14 Fortune 500 companies, the city has a young, lively vibe. Charlotte Douglas International Airport is the sixth busiest airport in the world – with over 700 flights daily with direct nonstop service to 165 cities.

Stay tuned for all the details and in the meantime… start your engines…
