Whats New in Long Beach for Meetings and Events

New meeting spaces, upgraded WI-FI and entertainment improvements underscore Long Beach's enhancements & innovations.

Upgraded Wi-Fi & Technology

The Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center has become one of the first mid-sized centers with a wireless network rivaling the largest convention centers in the country.

The Cove

The newest venue at the Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center is The Cove. Officially opened in July 2017, The Cove is perfect for pre-function receptions, concerts, and parties and allows for special catering setups and even food truck events.

Rainbow Bridge

Our new pedestrian bridge mimics a breaking wave in design and is illuminated by thousands of customizable LED lights, both inside the canopy and the underbelly of the structure, affording a more pleasurable walk between the Pine Avenue Long Beach Convention Center entrance and the Performing Arts Center theaters, Seaside Meeting Rooms, and the Long Beach Arena.

Lighting & Sound Systems on the Terrace Plaza

The completely renovated and re-landscaped Terrace Theater Plaza is becoming the hottest ticket in town for memorable special events. Cocktail receptions, buffet and sit down dinners become elegant outdoor affairs under Long Beach’s sunny skies or the Plaza’s dazzling displays of colorful LED lighting.

Terrace Theater Plaza Fountains

This year, the Terrace Theater Plaza fountains are undergoing a full renovation! When completed, the new fountains will be programmable with lights and music similar to a mini-Venetian water display. Stay tuned for updates!
