Just 10 miles from downtown Los Angeles,
Pasadena offers an alluring, New World–style
enclave filled with charm as warm as its
weather. And with the LEED Gold–certified
Pasadena Convention Center at its highly
accessible core, the Southern California city
is primed for all types of meetings and events.
The Pasadena Convention Center’s main
asset is its 55,000-square-foot exhibit hall,
which can expand to 80,000 square feet. Other center spaces include a 25,000-square-foot
ballroom, 29 meeting rooms, a 3,000-seat
Civic Auditorium, and a 22,000-square-foot
outdoor plaza — perfect for the city’s average
temperature of 76 degrees. Unique Pasadena
event-venue options include the Rose Bowl
Stadium’s field and press box, the California
Institute of Technology, Pasadena Museum
of History, and authentic Chinese courtyard
at the Pacific Asia Museum.
Pasadena’s pedestrian-friendly design
also makes it easy for attendees to get
around. The city has 2,500 hotel rooms, 1,200
of which are within walking distance of the
convention center. Meeting attendees can
easily walk to the 60-plus shops, alfresco
wine bars, and eateries of Paseo Colorado.
Pasadena is home to 500 restaurants and
one of only 16 Le Cordon Bleu–affiliated culinary schools in the nation, and the city’s cultural institutions are recognized as some of
the finest in the country. The Norton Simon
Museum has masterpieces by artists from
Rembrandt to Rodin, and the 207-acre Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical
Gardens has more than 9 million items and
16 gardens to explore.
The Pasadena Convention & Visitors
Bureau’s extensive menu of complimentary
services includes no-cost site-selection assistance, an online housing service, information
about transportation and spousal tours, promotional materials, and more.
