Non-stop flights arrive from 38 U.S. destinations and four international locales. Durham and RDU enjoy service from nine major airlines and their regional partners.

communities, Durham ranked first on the Creativity Index™ – a measure of a community’s technology, talent, and tolerance – key factors important in attracting a “creative class” of people who are particularly innovative and contribute to a successful, vital economy.

Durham & Raleigh

City of Medicine The 1910 invention of BC Headache Powder® in Durham may have been the city’s first step toward becoming a city of medicine; this was boosted by the opening of Duke University Medical School in 1930. Now, Durham is home to many weight management centers, a number of world-class pharmaceutical research centers, and six modern hospitals.

“Raleigh-Durham” is the name of the airport that serves two, distinct metropolitan statistical areas—one called Durham-Chapel Hill, and another called Raleigh-Cary. The airport is coowned by the cities of Durham and Raleigh along with Durham and Wake counties. RDU is located at the western edge of Wake County, midway between the cities of Durham and Raleigh.

The Triangle Region “The Triangle” has many meanings. Often it refers to Durham-based Research Triangle Park. Originally, it referred to the creators of the research park: Duke University in Durham, NC State University in Raleigh, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Today, the term is used to refer to a “family of communities” centered around two metropolitan statistical areas, one four-county metro centered around the core city, Durham, NC, and another three-county metro centered around Raleigh and Cary.

“Raleigh-Durham” is also a misused, shorthand term for the two-metro Raleigh-Durham-Cary combined statistical area. As with Baltimore and Washington, Dallas and Fort Worth, or Anaheim and Los Angeles, it is rarely feasible to use these cities as one combined convention site. The Durham Metropolitan Statistical Area, which surrounds most of RTP, boasts the highest concentrations of Ph.D.s in the Southeast and one of the highest in the nation.

North Carolina

DCVB

North Carolina is the “Old North State,” a reference that originated with the division of the Carolinas in 1710. It was one of the 13 original American colonies, the first to vote for Independence, and the 12th to ratify the U.S. Constitution. The state motto is esse quam videri, “to be rather than to seem.” The dogwood is the state flower, the cardinal the state bird, and the emerald the state gem. North Carolina is now home to 9.65 million residents, who are sometimes called “Tar Heels.” This nickname dates to pre-Revolutionary days, when tar, pitch, and turpentine were extracted from North Carolina pine forests for British naval sailors.

“DCVB was extremely helpful and timely with advice and assistance." Jim Ford, College View Duplicate Bridge Club

ABOUT DURHAM

Research Triangle Park Research Triangle Park (RTP) is the leading and largest high technology research and science park in North America.

Present Today, RTP includes over 170 companies, 42,000 full time employees, and 10,000 contract workers. It is an internationallyknown hub for innovation, development, and research. RTP is surrounded by a variety of other Durham business and corporate parks, populated by pharmaceutical, microelectronic, biotechnology, telecommunications, textile, and other businesses. Some of the area’s roads are tree-lined boulevards with extensive bike and walking paths, and the whole area has ready access to major traffic thoroughfares that make for easy commuting.

Past RTP was built to stop what is known as “brain drain” which referred to the departure of students who received great educations at area universities. There was a strong interest in keeping that intellectual capital close by, and so RTP was born. Founded in 1959, this 7,000-acre namesake for the entire Triangle region is two miles wide and eight miles long, based in Durham with an extension spilling into Wake County toward Cary and Morrisville. Just four miles from Downtown Durham and encompassed on three sides by the City of Durham, RTP was originally named for its affiliation with three major research universities: Duke University in Durham, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and North Carolina State University

in Raleigh. The three original universities are now joined by Durham’s North Carolina Central University (located less than two miles from RTP), playing a major role as home to the Biomanufacturing Research Institute & Technology Enterprise (BRITE) Center for Excellence.

Future The park is now embarking on a new 50-year master plan to include more lifestyle enhancements and assets, with the objective of making RTP a more functional area for those commuting in to work, as well as options to live there. With a very strategic eye on the future, new housing, lodging, dining, and retail options are now under consideration for development to make RTP a bright spot on the future’s horizon as well. Research Triangle Park is not a city, but it has a special Durham postal substation – Research Triangle Park, NC 27709. It exists in a special county district, serviced by Durham utilities.

A Nexus for Entrepreneurs Durham, a city with deep entrepreneurial roots, has garnered national attention for its progressive and innovative nature for hundreds of years. Downtown Durham is home to over 75 startup companies employing more than 500 people.

In 2011, Durham was the first stop on the US Small Business Administration’s national tour of roundtable discussions called Startup America: Reducing Barriers. In other words, entrepreneurism is an essential part of Durham’s DNA.

Major Sports Facilities

From the Duke Blue Devils and the North Carolina Central Eagles to the AAA Durham Bulls, international and pre-Olympic competitions to the only Rose Bowl not held in Pasadena, Durham has hosted many exciting sports events through the years.

A

center for both collegiate and amateur sports, Durham offers an array of major athletic facilities. The athletic departments at both Duke University and North Carolina Central University have experienced planners who host multitudes of competitions and events annually. Community residents and businesses regularly demonstrate their enthusiastic support. The Durham Bulls, an International League affiliate of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, set national attendance records when they play at home in the beautiful Durham Bulls Athletic Park.

“I have no idea what magic wand you have, but I received the fastest turn around I have ever seen from a city… I just wanted to make sure to to thank you; without the support of (DCVB) we would never be able to accomplish things like this on such insane timelines.” Shannon L.
