The Destination Irvine team promoted Irvine as a top destination for meeting and conference groups this month during Cvent CONNECT 2019, the world’s largest event technology conference for meeting, event, and hospitality professionals. 

As part of her participation during the conference’s trade show, AnaLaura Becerra, director of corporate sales, Destination Irvine, hosted nearly 50 walk-in appointments with meeting planners from throughout the nation in the pharmaceutical and life science industries including Abbott Laboratories, Boehringer Ingelheim, and Phenomenex.

“Irvine’s robust med-tech and life-science industries make it an ideal destination for meeting groups and event planners looking to connect with local thought leaders, and potential research and business development opportunities,” said Becerra.  

Greater Irvine Chamber’s Destination Irvine partners with the tourism and hospitality industry to brand and promote Irvine as a preferred overnight destination in Southern California for groups, sports events, leisure visitors, and business travelers.
