Just a hop, skip, and a jump from the happiest place on earth, Disneyland, is the Anaheim Convention Center (ACC), which is making magic all on its own.  

Already the West Coast’s largest convention center, spanning 1.8 million square feet, the Anaheim Convention Center can now also say that it is the recipient of Exhibitor Magazine’s 2020 Centers of Excellence award. The award honors North America’s best convention centers for trade shows and events, selecting 20 facilities to be recognized. 

In addition to receiving this award, ACC can look back on 2019 as a year of successes, many of which contributed to their award. From hosting a record-breaking 55 conventions and welcoming nearly 900,000 attendees to its opening of an additional 200,000 square feet of space, ACC has proven itself to be one of the top convention centers in the country.  

Demand for the ACC continues to grow, as seen through the destination’s six consecutive years of record-breaking growth. With a lively and supportive local community, world-class service, state-of-the-art accommodations, and endless dining and entertainment opportunities within walking distance, the award should only add to event planner’s confidence in working with the venue.  

On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

According to a survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), frequent travelers feel safer when hotels adhere to AHLA's Stay Safe guidelines, which detail cleaning protocols for hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

Through responses to bi-weekly surveys, Global Business Travel Association members have indicated that domestic busines travel is ramping up after months of struggle.
