California’s trademark abundance, combined with reliable sunshine and a welcoming spirit, makes the state a magnet for meetings of all types and sizes. The Golden State’s variety of venues, landscapes, and experiences are a fundamental part of its appeal, and so is the culture of inclusivity and collaboration that fuels innovation and entrepreneurship. California offers a steadfast commitment to stewardship and success, and an open invitation to dream big and meet what’s possible.  

Meeting options abound: In Los Angeles County alone you’ll find five distinct destinations, each with their own appeal—Beverly Hills, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Pasadena, and Santa Monica. Elsewhere in Southern California, consider the first-rate offerings in Anaheim, Dana Point, Greater Palm Springs, Newport Beach, Costa Mesa, Santa Ana, Irvine, and San Diego. Further north, Monterey, Sacramento, San Francisco, San Jose, Santa Barbara, Napa Valley, and Sonoma County all cater to meeting planners. 

Click on any of the links above to learn more about each destination’s facilities, planning services, group activities, and more.
