Long Beach, California…part beach town, part big city. Located between Los Angeles and Orange County, Long Beach offers the perfect combination of downtown sophistication, with the beach vibe that has made Southern California famous. Over the past fifteen years, Long Beach has invested over $1 billion into its downtown waterfront, transforming it into one of the most dynamic seaside destinations in the country. Long Beach has 5,000 hotel rooms citywide, with more than 2,000 rooms within an easy walk to the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center. Many downtown hotels offer panoramic ocean views and there are accommodations choices for every preference and pocketbook; ranging from a historic ocean liner, singular boutique hotels, first-class business hotels, quality economic properties to family oriented and long-term-stay properties. From the regal Queen Mary and spectacular Aquarium of the Pacific, to stirring Broadway shows, live music venues, and nightclubs, and more than 125 quality restaurants in an 8-block area around the convention center, Long Beach is the perfect destination for meetings and tourists. Getting to Long Beach has never been easier, with service from three major airports. LAX and Orange County airports are less than 30 minutes away. The Long Beach Airport is the Southland’s “easy-in, easy-out” airport, just seven minutes from downtown. Long Beach Airport consistently wins awards and praise for its air fares, passenger services, beautiful passenger lounges and top dining and restaurant choices. Long Beach Airport is the west coast hub for JetBlue and also has service by Southwest Airlines, American, and Delta. The Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center continues to innovate and improve its facilities to match the city enhancements taking place around it. Long Beach has become an innovative leader in creating “a new essence of meeting style,” perfecting an open, comfortable environment where attendees can easily connect and collaborate. Meeting and special event planners will find that Long Beach is also a leader in the creation of unique event facilities. The Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center continues to expand its inventory of “turnkey” venues that allow a meeting planner to dramatically cut event costs while retaining the ability to creatively customize their event. The Center’s turnkey facilities have built-in professional lighting and sound systems, along with extensive furniture and decorative choices. Long Beach’s premiere turnkey venue is the Pacific Room at the Long Beach Arena, which opened in 2013, revolutionizing the platform design for event spaces. The loft-style ballroom’s 46,000 square feet of customizable event space is complete with a floating tension grid ceiling and moveable, floor-to-ceiling curtain walls to create just the right environment for any group. The curtain walls are projection ready and a built-in theater and LED lighting system allows planners to create amazing lighting effects. Images and video can also be projected on the curtains to create vivid special effects. With professional lighting and sound systems all built in, planners experience substantial cost savings in planning their events.
