Irvine Featured in Smart Meetings’ ‘The Real Cities of Orange County’
Friday, August 24, 2018
Irvine was recently highlighted as a top option in Orange County for meetings in the meeting-industry publication, Smart Meetings. The article features several cities in the county that offer attractive options for meetings groups.
Here’s what they had to say about Irvine:
Why we love it: Irvine almost always appears on lists of best places to live, work and do business. It’s one of America’s largest and most successful master-planned urban communities. That plan emphasized responsible growth and preserving the natural environment. Today, there are more than 100 global corporations there. There are also more than 16,000 acres of preserved natural habitats, and hiking and biking trails.
Outstanding feature: Bommer Canyon is the site of the old Irvine Ranch Cattle Camp. Some of the original structures remain, offering a glimpse of daily life for early Irvine settlers. There are trails for hiking, mountain-biking and horseback-riding. The 15-acre grounds are also available for group rental, with picnic tables, a covered stage, a barbecue pit and a chuck wagon for food preparation.
Unique meetings facility: AV Irvine is the fusion of high-technology with meeting planners’ needs and attendees’ productivity. The result is a stunning, state-of-the-art, 25,000-square-foot facility like few others in America, featuring a 30-foot LED wall and advanced sound and lighting technology, along with customizable spaces. If you’d like to see what the future of event spaces looks like, visit AV Irvine.
Exciting downtime option: Your attendees can take a group outing with rental bikes from Pedego Irvine. Pedegos aren’t just bikes, though—they’re electric bikes. You don’t have to worry about city streets, either. Pedego Irvine sits amid miles of bike trails, one of which starts right outside the door.
Surprise your group: Take attendees to Irvine Spectrum Center, a leader in the new wave of outdoor lifestyle destinations, at which they can shop, eat, be entertained and enjoy amusements. And it’s a great place for your attendees to unwind on the carousel or the 108-foot-tall Giant Wheel.
