Anaheim, CA

Like so many cities in southern California, Anaheim enjoys sunny weather and low rainfall for most of the year, and it’s a highly popular destination for trade shows, expos, and corporate events of all kinds. The Heart of Orange County is home to the Los Angeles Angels and, of course, Disneyland®!

Anaheim is also where you’ll find one of the biggest convention centers on the West Coast. The Anaheim Convention Center & Arena clocks in at 1.6 million square feet and has an 800,000-square-foot exhibition hall and a 100,000-square-foot outdoor plaza. Then there’s Angel Stadium, which hosts a wide range of corporate and industry events in its 29,000 square feet—after baseball season is over.

Anaheim Event Services

Need help with one or more aspects of an upcoming event? ProGlobalEvents has an expert team ready to go! We offer a full range of event services, including design, production, and management, for every stage of event planning and execution in Anaheim. We can develop your event theme and create content to match, design an engaging attendee experience, hire and manage vendors and contractors, and find and manage the perfect complement of speakers. From start to finish, we can do it all, creating a seamless, exciting experience for every exhibitor and visitor.

Event Design

One of the first tasks in putting an event together is also one of the most challenging. Event attendees are increasingly sophisticated, with higher expectations of the events they attend. It takes a lot of creative planning to design an event that’s engaging, exciting, and meaningful. With ProGlobalEvents working for you, it’s as good as done. Our expert creative team is ready to get to work on themes and design elements, and branding and digital media, to give your event the flair it deserves!

Event Planning

If you’re planning a corporate event, you already know what a huge undertaking this is. There are many hours of work involved to pull it all together, and a lot to do, often within a short amount of time. With ProGlobalEvents on your event team, planning is made simple. We can help you define your event goals; find sponsors; negotiate contracts for Anaheim venues, vendors, and accommodations; and more. Our team of experienced personnel—and long list of industry contacts—allows us to get the work of event planning done quickly and neatly.

Exhibit Production and Activation

PGE are event experts, not just when it comes to planning and management, but also for the production and activation of exhibits. We have access to over 120,000 square feet of exhibit production and storage facilities, allowing us to design and manufacture exhibits too! We also offer shipping and storage, and labor for installation.

Event Management

Even after all the work of planning is done, there’s still more to do in managing the event once it’s under way. With ProGlobalEvents, your event is in capable hands. Our management team can handle every aspect of the live event and take care of any problems that arise too.

Virtual Events

Whether you’re converting a live Anaheim event into the online environment or are starting a virtual event from scratch, there’s just as much work to do as any other kind of event. Fortunately, ProGlobalEvents isn’t only a live event expert, we’re experienced when it comes to virtual events too. From planning the event to securing virtual sponsors, vendors, or exhibitors, from creating a theme to designing graphics and AV content, our industry knowledge serves us equally well online as in the world of live Anaheim events.

ProGlobalEvents is a full-service virtual event management company, and we can put together a virtual event you’ll be proud of. We’re happy to provide partial service too. If there are certain things you prefer to manage yourself, feel free to hand the reins over to us for everything else.

Post-Event Analysis

What parameters define success? It’s more than just the number of exhibitors and attendees your event draws! Post-event analysis is all about defining success on your terms, according to the goals you set. After the event is over, ProGlobalEvents gathers data, creates financial reports, and more, generating a wealth of useful data. Analysis is vital because it doesn’t just show how successful the event was—it also provides information that helps you plan future events.

ProGlobalEvents Provides the Expertise You Need to Ensure Success

Event planning, production, and management involves a huge amount of work in multiple fields. When you need help with one or more aspects of putting an event together in Anaheim, ProGlobalEvents can provide whatever aid you need. Or, if you need a full-service team to handle the entire event, we have the expertise for that too! Whatever the job, we’re ready to get to work for you.

The center is fully equipped to host a range of events, but really shines for large conferences, trade shows, and expos.

Business Expo Center

The Business Expo Center offers 36,000 square feet of flexible event space, including 14 meeting rooms and 25,000 square feet of open exhibit space.

The exhibit hall provides room for up to 140 exhibitors and 1,000 attendees.

Angel Stadium of Anaheim

The official home of the Los Angeles Angels, this stadium plays host to all manner of events in the off-season.

With 29,000 square feet of event space—both indoors and out—it’s also suitable for small-to-medium trade shows and expos.

The Phoenix Club

Looking for a smaller, more intimate kind of venue for a product launch, banquet, or other corporate event? The Phoenix Club is a great option, with a number of flexible rooms and spaces, indoors and outdoors. The largest room is the Festhall, which at 11,500 square feet, is large enough to comfortably hold 1,000 people. Other rooms at the Phoenix Club can accommodate between 100 and 750 people, while the two outdoor areas are suitable for groups of up to 50 each.

Hilton® Anaheim

Located right next door to the Anaheim Convention Center, the Hilton Anaheim’s 1,572 guest rooms and 150,000 square feet of event space mean it has great potential of its own.

The hotel is also located near some of the area’s biggest attractions, including Angel Stadium, Disneyland, and the Honda Center®.
