Orange County is the heartland of Southern California. From when Walt Disney first decided to put Disneyland in the middle of orange orchards back in 1955, the county has grown into a thriving center for theme park attractions and all manner of industry.
The orange orchards are gone now, and Highway 39, which used to tie Los Angeles to the O.C.'s famous beaches, have long since been replaced by super-slab highways 8 lanes wide in each direction, bringing both tourists and the carriers of industry. Banquet facilities and meeting venues have become a booming business, as Orange County is far more convenient than the gridlocked Los Angeles. Conference guests can fly directly into John Wayne Airport and be at their hotels in short order. The spread of entertainments is so diverse and numerous that the hard part is choosing which of the attractions you want to visit! From glistening beaches to the magic of theme parks, Orange County has everything anyone might dream of for a business meeting or conference. Let's have a look at some of the fine California event facilities that Unique Venues offers:
Maggiano's Little Italy Restaurant in Costa Mesa has long been a favorite. The restaurant's warm wood accents and Old-World charm have won the minds, while the excellent food leaves attendees long remembering the quality authentic Italian cuisine. Great for wedding receptions and smaller awards ceremonies, banquets of any kind, Maggiano's is a fine banquet facility choice for your next gathering.
Dave & Buster's has been shaking things up all over the O.C.! With locations in both Orange and Irvine, this meeting venue's special draw is their massive game room. With over 200 different video simulators, pool tables, basketball hoops, and the like, your guests are in for a real treat! Visit Dave & Busters Irvine and Dave & Busters Orange.
CineMeetings is another great option for your presentation or event.
