Each night, conference attendees experienced trendy events, where they immersed themselves in the latest in entertainment, décor, catering, and people-pleasing activities. The week opened with Connect Live, a welcoming California-themed night held at The RANCH Saloon. Guests were greeted by Old Hollywood-inspired servers and encountered eye-catching brand activations, including costumed living activations. Event Chair: Tracy Bowles, Flawless Weddings & Events, LLC
The Opening Night Party at Muckenthaler Cultural Center, themed SoCality, wowed attendees with Southern California charm. Creative beverage stations, a paint-by-number mural, and a wandering guitarist contributed an energetic feel to the event. Event Chair: Rosemary Vera & Sarah Kulhberg, Colette’s Catering & Events
The Event Experience, held at the House of Blues Anaheim, had a touch of Star Wars theme in honor of occurring on May the Fourth (deemed Star Wars Day for the play on words, “May the fourth (force) be with you”). Champagne Creative Group and Cirque Berzerk lit up the venue in illuminated costumes. Event Chairs: Dina Morales & Amy Sleeper, Haute Companies
The conference finished with the Closing Night Party at Marriott Anaheim, with a theme that led guests through the decades. From the Roaring ‘20s to the 2000s turn of the millennium, attendees experienced flappers, Pacman, an inflated bounce house, and silent disco. Event Chair: Jeniffer Bello, JB Experiences
