Plan your next meeting or event in Monterey, CA. Known for being “the greatest meeting of land and sea,” Monterey has more to offer your attendees than you could incorporate into just one meeting. A world-class destination, Monterey has direct access to Pebble Beach, Carmel-by-the-Sea, Big Sur, and much more.
The Monterey Bay
The most spectacular and protected Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary is known for its stunning kelp forests and abundance of sea life from humpback whales and blue whales to jellyfish and sea otters. Meeting in Monterey offers easy access to charter cruises on the Monterey Bay for opening receptions, and private dinners or events at the world-famous Monterey Bay Aquarium.
Vineyards, Wine Tastings & Award-Winning Wine
Monterey County is home to beautiful vineyards and tasting rooms offering award-winning Pinot Noirs, Chardonnays, and other varietals. Plan for your attendees to explore wineries and vineyards, taste wine directly from a barrel, or invite the winemaker to your event and learn about the wines while you enjoy dinner in Portola Hotel’s grand ballroom.
The Great Outdoors
Inspiration and collaboration are inevitable when attendees have an opportunity to enjoy the natural beauty of the outdoors. Monterey County offers 18 world-class championship golf courses, access to hiking trails at Point Lobos and Big Sur, and biking along the recreational path following the coastline of the Monterey Bay.
Historical Sites & Landmarks
Monterey is known for historic sites and landmarks with Spanish adobes, California’s first state theater, and areas made famous by author John Steinbeck, like Cannery Row. Treat your attendees to an evening at a historic estate in a lavish rose garden at La Mirada or tour the historical sites right outside the Portola Hotel.
