Did you know?
The Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center has recently invested $40 million into modernizing the design and functionality of our event space. The effort is already paying off, enhancing our clients' events with a tightly knit, connected sense of community that allows for collaboration and sharing in a new way. These renovations are especially noticeable at the arena, which is at the forefront of the event experience.
Conventions, Trade & Consumer Shows
The world has changed.
Our daily lives are defined by our opportunities to connect and share like never before. Today, it's no longer acceptable to create a one-way path of communication- in fact, it's downright boring. And in event planning, there is no crime worse than boring. But the fact is that experiential spaces are still designed to go one way- to address 21st centry visitors in 20th Century Terms.
Crucial to creating that atmosphere are the many specially designed networking enclaves, sconces, conversation pods and lounges . Now, instead of milling aimlessly- and sometimes awkwardly- between programs, guests feel invited to cluster with one another to share their thoughts and feellings on the event, meet new acquaintances and fully enjoy the experience.
The Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center offers flexible state-of-the-art meeting and event spaces, including three adjoining exhibit halls, two theaters, an arena, four ballrooms, two VIP lounges and 34 meeting rooms. Also available for your convenience: a concierge and restaurant reservation desk, luxurious and comfortable lobby/pre-function space, full-service catering and on-site audio/visual support.
With our focus on connection, its no surprise that the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center puts visitors right in the heart of Long Beach's scintillating downtown scene. No need to drive around looking for extracurricular ways to extend your event experience- the city's best shopping, entertainment and dining options are all within walking distance.
Multi-faceted Exhibit Halls.
The Center features three multi-faceted exhibition halls that can be used individually or in combinations of up to 224,000 square feet of contiguous floor space, allowing maximum creativity in planning for conventions, tradeshows, meetings or special events.

The word you're looking for is "Wow."
Designed with mood-defining architectural details and more, our spaces were created to reflect and enhance their surroundings.

We've invested millions in resdesigning our spaces, furnishings, lighting and sounds- all of which is yours to utilize at no cost. We'll bring the city chic and beach cool. You just bring your vision.
Imagining a space won't be hard - we're happy to support your muse. Firepits or flambé, rooftop or sand - these venues can get hot!
