Top 10 best corporate meeting venues in Los Angeles

26 May 2023 · 8
Located on the west coast of the United States, in southern California, Los Angeles is a bustling metropolis with excellent transportation links and world-class venues for corporate events. Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) offers nonstop flights to over 100 destinations worldwide. In terms of transportation within the city, LA has an extensive network of buses and trains, which makes it easy for attendees to get around and explore the city during their downtime.
LA is a business epicenter for many industries, particularly the growing tech and media markets. But, when the work day is done, the city has plenty on offer to keep your attendees entertained, especially the vibrant nightlife scene, with bars, clubs, and live music venues to suit all tastes–and pristine beaches to unwind. With such a diverse population, you can enjoy top-quality food, from Korean barbecue to Mexican cuisine and everything in between.
With all this on offer, LA is an ideal city to hold all sorts of corporate events. To help you along with the planning process, here’s a list of the ten best meeting rooms and corporate event venues in LA.

What to look for when sourcing a venue

Finding the right venue involves juggling several factors. First, the venue must accommodate the right number of attendees and have suitable meeting spaces with the right equipment and facilities. The location should also have good transport links (nothing the land of Hollywood has to worry about) and sufficient parking if required.
If you’re hosting a drinks reception or a conference of several days, it’s important to think about food and beverage options, as well as accommodation if required. The overall cost, including any additional fees (important to keep an eye out for hidden costs), will also determine your venue hire.
The venue you ultimately pick will also be determined by the type of event you’re hosting. Some of the events companies hold at corporate meeting venues might include:
  • Meetings with clients or customers: a meeting venue can provide a professional setting creating a positive impression and helping to build constructive relationships.
  • Internal meetings or training sessions: an external venue can provide a neutral location for team meetings or training sessions, supporting productive discussions and encouraging participation.
  • Conferencing or events: the right space can provide the facilities required for larger-scale hybrid events (you’ll need fast-speed wifi) such as seminars, lectures, or product launches.
  • Team building activities: the ideal location for off-site training or group activities, helping to develop team cohesion and boost morale.
