As one of Southern California’s most unique travel destinations, Pasadena is a cultural epicenter and one of the country’s most accessible locations for meetings and conventions. Located just ten miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains, the city is within 16 miles of the Bob Hope/Burbank Airport, only 29 miles from Los Angeles International Airport and less than an hour from both the Long Beach and Ontario Airports.

Pasadena features a state-of-the-art Convention Center, fine dining, chic boutiques, resort hotels, and priceless art. The Center features 80,000 square feet of exhibit space that includes the 55,000 square foot exhibit hall and a 25,000-square-foot ballroom. Pre-function space totaling 25,000 square feet surrounds the dedicated exhibit space. The Convention Center campus also contains The Pasadena Civic Auditorium, which has permanent seating for 3,000, and a 28,000-square-foot Conference Center Building. In 2015, the convention center will debut a restored 17,000-square-foot historic exhibition hall after undergoing a $900,000 restoration. With a range of accommodations, including topnotch convention hotels, Pasadena offers 2,500 guest rooms to groups that include more than 1,200 rooms within walking distance from the Convention Center.
