With year-round sunshine, wide-open spaces and a dramatic mountain backdrop, Greater Palm Springs offers endless options for your next meeting or event. Arriving to our sunny Southern California oasis is easier than ever with recently increased air service, including the addition of Southwest Airlines. With nonstop service to 31 cities and connections to over 500 destinations worldwide, your attendees can arrive refreshed to Palm Springs International Airport itself, named one of the top 10 “most stress-free airports” in the U.S. by SmarterTravel.com for its outdoor walkways and shorter lines, which capture the destination’s natural beauty and laid-back lifestyle.
Outdoor event space is plentiful, including the 261,000-square-foot Palm Springs Convention Center, which features a 20,000-square-foot Event Lawn, as well as smaller open-air spaces like the Boulders Terrace, for breakouts beneath blue skies.
Many of the destination’s world-class resorts also offer unique outdoor venues. La Quinta Resort & Club, a Waldorf Astoria Resort, boasts 190,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space nestled at the base of the Santa Rosa Mountains, while the Kimpton Rowan Palm Springs provides beautiful valley views from its outdoor terrace and rooftop pool deck.
Greater Palm Springs is also making sure attendees feel not only inspired but safe once they arrive. Nearly 500 businesses—including hotels, restaurants and the Palm Springs Convention Center—have signed the Safer Together, Greater Together pledge, committing to implement the latest safety guidelines.
To celebrate their reopening and the return of safe, sunny meetings, Greater Palm Springs is offering a Meeting Oasis Incentive for bookings made by Sept. 30, 2021. The incentive includes discounts and credits for meetings that take place during the off-peak “chill” season (June, July and August) 2021 through 2023.
