Make a connection in the center of Orange County

In the heart of Southern California, Irvine combines the best of both worlds — a laid-back, breezy attitude and a forward-thinking business hub that more than 100 companies call home. Besides its 3,400 hotel rooms with 120,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, there are a number of other great reasons why planners should choose Irvine.

Climate and convenience. Irvine has near-perfect weather, with more than 280 days of sunshine a year. Irvine is also just 45 miles south of Los Angeles and 90 miles north of San Diego, and the John Wayne/Orange County Airport offers nonstop flights to most of the country's largest metropolitan centers.

Cost-conscious lodging and creative venues. Fourteen hotels with 3,400 total rooms ranging from economy to full-service luxury can be found in Irvine, and unique offsite venues vary from university campuses to golf-course clubhouses.

Delectable dining and the helpful team at Destination Irvine. Irvine's thriving international community means meeting planners can find a smorgasbord of culinary options. And if planners need help choosing one, Destination Irvine is a one-stop shop offering a range of complimentary services, from RFP distribution to off-site venue recommendations and more.
