Conventions, Trade & Consumer Shows

The world has changed.

Our daily lives are defined by our opportunities to connect and share like never before. Today, it's no longer acceptable to create a one-way path of communication- in fact, it's downright boring. And in event planning, there is no crime worse than boring. But the fact is that experiential spaces are still designed to go one way- to address 21st centry visitors in 20th Century Terms.

Until now. 

Crucial to creating that atmosphere are the many specially designed networking enclaves, sconces, conversation pods and lounges. Now, instead of milling aimlessly- and sometimes awkwardly- between programs, guests feel invited to cluster with one another to share their thoughts and feellings on the event, meet new acquaintances and fully enjoy the experience. 

The Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center offers flexible state-of-the-art meeting and event spaces, including three adjoining exhibit halls, two theaters, an arena, four ballrooms, two VIP lounges and 34 meeting rooms. Also available for your convenience: a concierge and restaurant reservation desk, luxurious and comfortable lobby/pre-function space, full-service catering and on-site audio/visual support.

With our focus on connection, its no surprise that the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center puts visitors right in the heart of Long Beach's scintillating downtown scene. No need to drive around looking for extracurricular ways to extend your event experience- the city's best shopping, entertainment and dining options are all within walking distance.
