1. Weather 

Greater Palm Springs’ blue skies, sunshine, and unparalleled beauty has made it Southern California’s outdoor playground, making it easy to see why our destination welcomes so much repeat business. 

2. Submit an RFP

When you submit an RFP to our staff, you’re tapping into a team of energetic professionals with an extensive network, who make site selection and meeting planning a breeze.

With one call or e-mail, we’ll distribute your RFP only to the hotels and venues that best meet your specific requirements. We can arrange to have individual responses sent to you directly or we can organize responses into a single presentation. We’ll also monitor progress to help you meet your deadlines.

Our team can also organize customized site inspections and offer easy access to venues and locations that are not always available to the public. Furthermore, we’re experts on the area’s hidden treasures, many of which might fall below a planner’s radar.

Once you’re on board, we can assist you with marketing support to entice attendees and on-site support that runs from housing, registration and conference staffing to destination transportation and logistics.
