Greater Palm Springs: A Meeting Oasis

Blue skies, beautiful outdoor venues and endless inspiration await. 

With sun-kissed skies, swaying palm trees and mountains you can almost reach out and touch, Greater Palm Springs provides an inspiring backdrop for meeting and connecting with colleagues. The destination’s nine distinct cities offer a unique blend of venues and attractions, from historic midcentury modern estates and sprawling polo fields to hockey games and hot mineral springs.

Plus, Greater Palm Springs enjoys more than 300 days of sunshine each year, meaning outdoor events and activities are on the agenda year-round. Mild winters and warm, sunny summers call for poolside networking and evening receptions beneath clear, starry skies. And what better way to build a stronger team or inspire bright ideas than by sharing a memorable experience in an extraordinary setting? 

Enjoy Easy Air Access 

Though Greater Palm Springs is located just hours from gateway cities like Los Angeles and San Diego, flying here directly has never been easier. Palm Springs International Airport (PSP) has experienced incredible growth in recent years, adding more than 35 new routes since January 2020, including a new nonstop route from Palm Springs to New York-JFK on Alaska Airlines starting this December. Today, more than a dozen airlines service PSP, with nonstop flights to 30-plus cities and connections to more than 500 destinations worldwide.

Discover New Attractions & Experiences 

Greater Palm Springs is always welcoming new developments to an already impressive lineup of venues, accommodations and attractions, including Acrisure Arena, an 11,000-seat sports and entertainment venue that not only hosts concerts and private events, but is also home to the Seattle Kraken’s American Hockey League (AHL) franchise, the Coachella Valley Firebirds.  

Groups can also tap into the destination’s renowned wellness scene at the new Spa at Séc-he, whose natural hot mineral spring waters are estimated to be 12,000 years old, or book private events at the adjacent Agua Caliente Cultural Museum, which celebrates the history, culture and modern achievements of the Agua Caliente tribe and is expected to open later this year.

Soak Up Sunny Meeting Spaces 

Many Greater Palm Springs hotels and resorts feature expansive patios, courtyards and grassy lawns that allow groups to soak in the year-round sunshine and beautiful views. A wide range of outdoor meeting space includes everything from boutique hotels to major properties like the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa, boasting a spectacular lake and palm tree-lined grove, and La Quinta Resort & Club, known for their lushly landscaped grounds dotted with citrus trees and nestled at the base of mountains.

Attendees can break out in a whole new way at unique outdoor venues like the BMW Performance Center (where they mix meetings with high-speed laps around the racetrack) and The Living Desert Zoo & Gardens (a wonderfully “wild” space with group animal encounters).
