Located at the mouth of the Providence River at the head of Narragansett Bay which feeds into the Atlantic Ocean, Providence is a natural gateway to the world. Providence’s universities and research hospitals draw world-class professionals, academics and an international student population adding to the culture and diversity of this historic city.
The city features vibrant business districts, a strong economy and unique architecture that celebrates the past while embracing the future. With a population of just under 200,000, it is the third largest city in New England after Boston and Worcester and is a short drive from both.
With a thriving arts community, vibrant and diverse neighborhoods, outstanding hotels, a renowned restaurant scene and so many things to do, Providence is the perfect venue for the ICMGP2017.
We hope that your attendance at the ICMGP2017 affords you the opportunity to explore and experience this very special City and surrounding areas.
