Build a Memorable Experience With Visit Anaheim

Anaheim, Orange County remains a vibrant and evolving destination for meetings. Centrally located in Southern California, Orange County is accessible from four major airports so guests have plenty of arrival options. Plus, the Anaheim Convention Center, the largest on the West Coast, is about to open an additional 200,000 square feet of flexible, carpeted space which will include 100,000 square feet of column-free space on the top level and finished ceilings with movable air walls offering a variety of meeting room layout options.

With our new flexible meeting space, your set-up can be as creative as you are. We can give you small and intimate spaces or hugely impressive ones—all at the same time!

If you had a venue along our 42 miles of coastline in mind, our destination experts can help you create an extraordinary local experience steeped in Southern Californian charm. For Visit Anaheim, it’s all about surprising and delighting your imagination and making you, and your guests, feel special.

New and Next in Anaheim:
In September, the Anaheim Convention Center (ACC), already the largest convention center on the West Coast, will debut 200,000 square feet of carpeted, column-free, flexible space, creating a blank canvas for meeting professionals and providing the ultimate opportunity for event customization.

With superior service access, direct access to an over 10,000 square foot outdoor balcony and state of the art pre-function and registration areas, the additional meeting space meets the ever growing and changing demands of meeting professionals.

ACC North Details:

  • Natural light on each level with blackout capabilities.
  • Up to 35 rooms on the 200 level (over 3,400 linear feet of moveable walls) and up to 13 rooms on the 100 level (over 2,200 linear feet of moveable walls) brings the ACC total meeting room count to 99.
  • ACC North meeting rooms are grouped into neighborhoods to allow for customizable climate and lighting controls.
  • Rigging points on a 10’x10’ spacing on each level and pre-function spaces are able to hang 2,000 lbs. every 10 feet in the event space of levels 100 and 200, and in the pre-function “lobby” space – that’s over 2,100 points to hang!

The basic functional components of ACC North were arranged in an innovative fashion to create a unique meeting facility that is unrivalled in the industry by taking advantage of the existing site conditions and constantly searching for great solutions for meeting professionals that raise the bar for convention centers worldwide.

The ACC isn’t the only development in Anaheim – four 4-diamond hotels are set to open around the ACC by 2021, along with additional entertainment and dining options.

Four Diamond Hotel to be Built Next to Anaheim Convention Center: The $225 million, 634- room property will stand eight stories high with 42,000 square feet of meeting space and will open in 2020.

Orange County’s First JW Marriott Comes to Anaheim: A JW Marriott will be built adjacent to the Anaheim GardenWalk, located 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. Construction is set to being in late 2017.

Luxury Hotel to Replace Anaheim Plaza Hotel & Suites: Located on the corner of Harbor Blvd. and Disney Way, the 580-room property will have two signature restaurants, swimming pools, 50,000 square feet of meeting space and a lounge overlooking the Disneyland Resort ®.

Construction on the $208 million hotel will begin in 2018.

Disneyland Resort Reveals Plans ® for New Hotel: Disneyland Resort has announced the addition of a luxury hotel to its Anaheim collection. The property will be the fourth in the resort and first new build in nearly 20 years. The 700-room, AAA Four Diamond hotel will offer many luxury amenities including two pools, a fitness center, concierge service and a kid’s play area. Guests will enjoy viewing fireworks at the rooftop restaurant that overlooks the park. Construction on the hotel, located at the north end of the Downtown Disney® parking lot, begins in 2018 with a slated 2021 opening.

Everywhere you turn in Anaheim and Orange County, you’ll experience a culture of service that is simply in our DNA like no other city in America. And you know it’s true: service can make the difference between a ho-hum meeting and a true Five Star Experience.

We are excited to share a glimpse of what our destination can offer.
