Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center

With its own airport as well as being situated within a half hour drive of LAX, Long Beach makes the perfect destination for meetings, conferences and tradeshows in sunny Southern California. This beach city is home to high-end hotels, an extensive-five-acre aquarium and now the newly redesigned Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center.

This ten million dollar upgrade was completed in November of 2013 and features smart spaces that flow flawlessly from exhibit hall to meeting rooms to theaters and pavilions. To encourage networking and interactions between attendees, innovatively designed enclaves, sconces, conversation pods and lounges have been incorporated into the décor and furnishings. No cost has been spared for the customizable lighting and smart sound systems designed with mood-enhancing elements that result in a versatile special-events space.

The convention and entertainment center can accommodate 9,000 people but has the ability to change shape, size and atmosphere on command to create a truly customized experience that fits varying attendance numbers and make each event truly unique. The state-of-the-art moveable ceiling truss system allows event organizers to tailor the entire center’s ceiling to the exact height and specification desired – an innovative idea influences by TED conferences that have been held at this site for five years.

The location is perfect – right in the heart of downtown Long Beach where attendees can spend their spare time exploring the permanently docked RMS Queen Mary or enjoying the many maritime activities in the Mediterranean climate.

At the end of the day, organizers and attendees alike can enjoy a handcrafted cocktail while taking in the beautiful 360-degree views of Long Beach’s dynamic and vibrant landscape.
