Why Meet in Palm Springs

Natural Beauty

Ideal weather. Gorgeous mountains. A charming village feel. And friendly people. Great places to stay, play, eat, shop, and relax. The spirit of adventure is alive and well in Palm Springs, whether golfing in a tournament, sipping cocktails at a poolside reception, or team building on a mountain adventure, our visitors marvel at the truly unique combination of urban activities within our suburban village. Hiking, biking, horseback riding, jeep tours, tramway, museums, spas, nightlife, theater and live entertainment. Or everyone’s favorite, lounging poolside under our big blue skies in the warmth of the sun – we have it all.

Location, location, location…

Our enviable location, within a tow hour drive from San Diego and Los Angeles, has long made us a favorite for event planners seeking to attract a larger audience. Located 1.5 miles from the Palm Springs International Airport, the Palm Springs Convention Center is walking distance to 1,600 hotel rooms and just blocks away from the Heart of Downtown and historic Palm Canyon Drive. Whether it’s a leisurely stroll or a morning power walk, drive and you miss finding that treasure to take back home.
