Carolina Central Universities. With neighboring Chapel Hill to the southwest, and Raleigh and Cary to the southeast, Durham is located at the pinnacle of the vast Research Triangle Region. Durham consistently ranks among the best places in the nation to live and to do business.

Stewart Waller/DCVB

Durham residents (95%) see conventions and visitors as very important to Durham’s economy;

more than 60% benefit personally, and 30% rank conventions and meetings in the top five industries in the local community. With nearly 8,000 guest rooms, two major convention centers, a wide range of unique meeting and event venues, and a prime location, Durham is definitely a place where great meetings and events happen.


Accessibility

Durham is within an hour’s flight or a day’s drive of more than half the nation’s population, is intersected by Interstates 40 and 85, and serviced by the Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) that transports nearly 10 million passengers annually.

Getting Here Via Air RDU International Airport is co-owned by and located midway between the two mid-sized destinations of Durham and Raleigh, North Carolina. The airport is a mere two miles from Southeast Durham, including Research Triangle Park, and only 12 miles from Downtown Durham. Named the most efficient small/medium airport in North America (2011), RDU serves nearly 10 million passengers annually with nearly 400 daily flights. Non-stop flights arrive from 37 U.S. destinations and four international locales. Durham and RDU enjoy service from nine major airlines and their regional partners.

Getting Here Via Highway/Rail Durham is within a day’s drive of over half the nation’s population and is also midway between Atlanta and Philadelphia. The community is wellconnected by Interstate 85 (from the north and south), Interstate 40 (from the west and east), and Interstate 540 (from the east); U.S. Highways 15, 70, and 501; as well as Megabus and Greyhound/Trailways bus service. Durham’s Amtrak train station provides rail passenger service within North Carolina and to other North American destinations.

Getting Around Durham is a compact, single-city county. Downtown is just 12 miles from the airport, four miles from Research Triangle Park (RTP), and two miles from Duke University. Lodging in Southeast Durham is only two miles from the airport and encompasses RTP. Transportation to and from the airport is available via taxicab, limousine, town car, public transport, hotel shuttle, or rental car. Durham’s prime location makes it great for tours of the area. The community is located midway between North Carolina’s mountains and beaches, the outlets of Burlington and the state capital of Raleigh, as well as convenient to Pinehurst, Charlotte, and Norfolk.

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.

It was re-settled throughout the country and the world. by the Scottish, Irish, and English in the 1700’s and named Durham in 1853.

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

RTI International/DCVB

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

F

ounded 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 now 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. This part of Durham is approximately equidistant between Raleigh and Chapel Hill. Originally envisioned by UNC’s Howard W. Odum and fostered by the administration of Durham native Governor William Umstead, the Park was developed by the Research Triangle Foundation in 1959 and now includes over 170 companies, 42,000 full time employees, and 10,000 contract workers. 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. Today, RTP is surrounded by a variety of other Durham business and corporate parks populated by pharmaceutical, microelectronic, biotechnology, telecommunications, and textile businesses to name a few. 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. County

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 60 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.
