Up and Coming in Anaheim

Days and days of sunshine and the largest convention center on the West Coast are just the tip of the iceberg (ahem, palm tree) in Anaheim. We’re celebrating the first year of our newest flexible space at the Anaheim Convention Center (ACC) and preparing to welcome fabulous new hotels to enhance our offerings and continue to provide you with everything you need to craft your events into anything you have ever imagined!

Anaheim Convention Center

Our latest expansion, ACC North, adds two carpeted 100,000 square foot ballrooms. Let your creativity soar with our second-level pillar-free ballroom that opens to a 10,000 square foot covered balcony. The ACC now offers 99 meeting rooms and over one million square feet of exhibit space.

New Hotels on the Horizon

Set to open in 2020, the seven-story The Westin Anaheim Resort will feature 613 stylish guestrooms including 101 suites, three restaurants, two bars including a rooftop lounge overlooking Disneyland’s nightly fireworks, a resort-style pool and a marketplace. The hotel will also feature 11 meeting rooms totaling 42,000 square feet of customizable and high-tech meeting space including a 16,000-square-foot grand ballroom.

Also opening in 2020, the JW Marriott Anaheim is currently under construction, located adjacent to the Anaheim GardenWalk in the heart of the Anaheim Resort district. The 12-story $150 million property will have 466 guest rooms as well as meeting space for groups.

Anaheim Arrival Updates

Only 13 miles away, John Wayne Airport (SNA) has just been named the Best Airport in the U.S. by Time-Money. With short security lines and on-site car rental, it’s easy to navigate and central to all Orange County cities. Plus, Delta has just added new nonstop service between Orange County and New York-JFK as of October 15 and Frontier Airlines has already begun service to San Antonio and Austin.

Brews News

Anaheim’s craft brewery scene is booming with 15 breweries open now and five more on the way. The same features that make breweries a great place to hang—like flights of quality beer, a laidback atmosphere and ample seating at communal tables, to name a few—lend themselves well to hosting organized events. Many Anaheim breweries, large or small, allow for full venue buyouts that guarantee both privacy and excellent service from knowledgeable tap-tenders.

Towne Park Brew, a 20,000-square-foot facility that can host up to 100 for parties with live music, catering and up to 16 different pours of beer. Bottle Logic, Bruery Terreux and Noble Ale Works are among those that have solid relationships with food truck purveyors, inviting them to feed hungry patrons every day of the week.  In Orange County, year-round sunshine makes every day a great one to spend outdoors. Golden Road’s beer garden features lawn games galore, a sand pit with lounge chairs and hammocks, and even an outdoor bar.
