Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center Whether you are planning a tradeshow, convention, corporate meeting or special event, the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center is an ideal location. Located in the heart of downtown Long Beach, the Center is within walking distance to first-class accom- modations (more than 5,000 rooms citywide, most within the downtown area), shopping, dining, attractions, sightseeing along picturesque bays and 5 1/2 miles of sandy beach. The Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center is a spectacu- lar multi-purpose complex - one of the few waterfront facilities nation- wide, featuring more than 400,000 square feet of flexible exhibit and meeting space, two theaters, an arena and 34 meeting rooms. The glass con- course and lobby offer expansive views of the scenic harbor and down- town skyline. A pedestrian prome- nade links hotels, shops, restaurants and attractions with the Pacific Ocean. The beautiful Terrace Theater is a full production theater that seats 3,051. The orchestra seating is shaped in a comfortable continental style. There are spaces for wheelchair seat- ing. The Terrace Lobby contains a full glass front with a view of the Terrace fountain. There is an ocean view on the East side of the facility and a downtown cityscape view from the front of the Theater. Long Beach is one giant play- ground located right in the heart of Southern California. Conference attendees have many options for entertainment and leisure in this sunny destination. Here you can expe- rience it all from a deep sea adventure at the Aquarium of the Pacific right on the bay and a voyage in time aboard the historic Queen Mary to lively guided tours through downtown and the colorful East Village. Within an hour's drive, you can explore the fabulous worlds of Universal Studios Hollywood, Disneyland, Disney's California Adventure and every major Southern California attraction. Visitors are also encouraged to catch a musical masterpiece at the waterside Long Beach Performing Arts Center, home to the Long Beach Symphony Orchestra, Long Beach Opera and International City Theater.

It's obvious that group travel and leisure travel at beachside venues and resorts is definitely an extremely cost effective and convenient method of getting away from it all and still upholding a sense of professionalism all in one location. There is a lot of controversy in the world now and folks want something to smile and be happy about through it all. Bringing your group to a fun tropical location to hold a meeting could be just that relaxing fix that will put your atten- dees at ease and gives them a chance to escape from it all but still be pro- ductive for working purposes.
