8 Trending San Diego Event Venues

While team building is a major focus this year, we’re still your go-to experts for San Diego event venues. Since securing event space is a crucial first step, we’ve curated a list of 8 trending venue options for your next corporate event.

Popular San Diego Event Venues

Hotel Terrace or Ballroom

Sometimes it’s ideal to utilize a blank canvas approach with a hotel’s terrace or ballroom. From Modern Moroccan Nights at L’Auberge Del Mar, to Glow Parties at Hard Rock Hotel (see below), The Event Team can bring any concept to life. Not to mention, staying on property eliminates transportation costs!

Beach Bash

Gone are the carting a keg out to the beach with 50 of your closest friends. New regulations make it harder than ever to secure beach event permitting in San Diego. Trust us, you don’t want high tide waves or low patience park rangers crashing the party. Choose a waterfront hotel (Paradise Point Resort or Hotel Del Coronado are excellent options), or opt for a state beach adjacent to the Pacific Coast Highway (see below).

Poolside Chic

When it comes to elegant San Diego event venues, poolside parties are everything, dahhhhhhling. Add chic decor, market string lights, and a classy guitarist, and you’re all set for a posh poolside affair. Below, catch a glimpse of our latest poolside event at Paradise Point Resort. Additionally, we can utilize pools as a performance venue for themed entertainment, like this Vintage Carnival Circus event at Omni La Costa, for example.

San Diego Zoo Events

Next, let’s take a look at some of San Diego’s most famous attractions, starting with the world-renowned San Diego Zoo. The sprawling facility offers several event venues to choose from; one of our favorites is Sabertooth Grill at the Elephant Odyssey exhibit (see below for recent highlights). Also, we can’t wait for this summer’s debut of “Africa Rocks,” a new 8-acre exhibit and event space.

MCAS Miramar & Officer’s Club

If you feel the need for speed, look no further than MCAS Miramar, where you can host your very own Top Gun party. Depending on your group size, host your event in the Hangar bay or at the famed Officer’s Club. Throw in flight simulators, custom dog tags, hangar tours, and a performance by our Maverick and Goose lookalikes, and you’ve got yourself a memorable hybrid of history and pop culture.

Parq

Doubling as both restaurant and nightclub, this popular Gaslamp venue packs a high energy one-two punch. Guests can enjoy a swanky seated dinner before heading to the club for DJs, drinks, and dancing. Theme options and decor concepts abound at Parq; check out this Carnival-inspired event below!

San Diego Air & Space Museum

If science and history resonate more closely with your group than nightlife, we suggest the San Diego Air & Space Museum for its impressive collection of replicas, artifacts, and exhibits. In short, this venue sure puts the “space” in event space.

USS Midway Museum

This “city at sea” features simultaneous views of sea, skyline, and sunset. As one of San Diego’s largest venues, the ship easily accommodates thousands. Peep some of our favorite events aboard the USS Midway Museum below!

General Manager Geraldine Caedo Earns DMCP Certification

What an appropriate week to give props to our Los Angeles General Manager Geraldine Caedo, who recently passed her DMCP certification exam, and who more recently (yesterday) celebrated her birthday!

What is a DMCP?

According to the Association of Destination Management Executives, “Destination Management professionals who earn their Destination Management Certified Professional (DMCP) designation demonstrate the highest level of knowledge and commitment to the destination management profession. To earn the DMCP designation, an individual must have years of experience in the field, active involvement in continuing education programs and have passed an exam that covers the body of knowledge of all aspects of destination management.”

The Process

We caught up with Geraldine this week and asked her to explain more about the exam.

geraldine.3

Why did you want to pursue your DMCP certification?
GC: I have always believed in continuing education. Becoming a DMCP was the most logical step in advancing my professional growth. It was also a great opportunity to gain mastery of best practices in our field.

Studying for the vigorous DMCP exam requires a lot of prep/study time. What was one of the most challenging things about it?
GC: In order to qualify to sit for the DMCP exam, one has to have a certain amount of applicable experience. In preparing for the exam, I quickly realized that my many years of experience actually created some challenges. So much of what we do is problem-solving which is counter-intuitive to the curriculum. Instead of thinking in terms of the best solution, my mind is trained to consider all possible solutions. Since there was only 1 correct answer to each question, I had to consciously not overthink, which is very difficult for me.

Did you learn anything new or interesting about the industry as you prepared for the test?
GC: It is important to examine how DMCs came to be, how they have evolved over time, and how they continue to evolve in order to stay competitive and relevant.

Growth is a running theme in your role as Los Angeles General Manager. In addition to taking steps toward your own professional growth, you’ve worked tirelessly toward growing your team all while keeping up with the city’s boom in business travel. In what ways do you anticipate the Los Angeles meeting and events industry changing in the coming years, and how do you plan on adapting to those changes at The Event Team?
GC: It is such an exciting time to live and work in Los Angeles right now, especially for the meeting and events community. From the return of the NFL to the pursuit of the 2024 Summer Olympic Games to the countless hotels and multi-use spaces being developed throughout the city, you can literally see our city growing in order to accommodate being one of the world’s top destinations. It’s imperative for us to keep pace with that growth by not just knowing the new and interesting offerings around town, but also by maintaining an awareness of the client experience and staying true to our commitment of personal and individualized service.

The Praises

At The Event Team, we’re so excited to boast another DMCP certification on staff! (This makes 4 and counting.) Geraldine’s colleagues are always quick to sing her praises:

“I was very impressed when Geraldine asked me if she could go for her DMCP certificate. I had been in the industry over 25 years when I took the test and it was still not easy to pass. To her credit she stuck with it and took the test with a very short time to prepare. She passed with flying colors and I am very  proud of her.”
Matt Robbins, President

“From working long hours in the office to being available to help every department, I wasn’t sure how she was going to find time to study for the test, but the determination and dedication she showed throughout her weeks leading to the test was unreal! I am proud that she was able to add yet another accomplishment to her academic belt and passed the DMCP!”
Marcie Booth, Senior Operations Manager

“I’m so proud of how she conquered the DMCP, just like almost everything else she sets out to do. I love that her door is always open and appreciate the fact that she’s as willing to learn as she is to teach. Her leadership is the heartbeat of the L.A. office and I’m grateful to work with her.”
Jameela Jackson, National Sales Manager

“Geraldine’s an awesome leader of the L.A. office; I don’ know what we would do without her!”
John-Carlo Boyle, Sales Assistant

“Behind every successful team is a boss that always seems to know everything. So it wasn’t surprising when Geraldine passed her DMCP exam (with flying colors, no doubt)! Leadership isn’t a skill, it’s a talent and Geraldine is extremely talented!”
Aimee Nobleza, Operations Assistant

When searching for corporate event planning services, it’s very important to select an organization that is accredited by ADME and that maintains the required amount of DMCP certifications among full time staff members. Geraldine’s DMCP achievement is not only a feather in the cap of her continuing education and The Event Team’s arsenal of “Super People” moments, it is a way of letting you know that your corporate events are in the most qualified and capable hands. If you’d like Geraldine and her team to work with you on your next Los Angeles event planning needs, please send us your RFP today! From corporate event entertainment to decor, tours, transportation, and teambuilding, The Event Team does it all!

Marcie Booth Promoted to Senior Operations Manager

Congratulations are in order for one of our “super people!” Last week, The Event Team destination management company promoted Marcie Booth from Operations Manager to Senior Operations Manager. “Marcie has quickly become an outstanding member of the Operations team,” said President/CEO Matt Robbins. “She is constantly receiving rave reviews from clients and she embodies our Core Value to ‘provide  exceptional and dependable service through prompt practice.’ We are very happy to promote her to Senior Operations Manager and look for more great things from Marcie.”

Geraldine Caedo, General Manager of our Los Angeles event planning office, said “In her almost 2 years with The Event Team, Marcie has truly emerged as a leader, not only in our Los Angeles office, but for the company as a whole. I’m very impressed by the growth and ambition that Marcie displays on a daily basis. As a Senior Operations Manager, in addition to running programs, she will be pursuing opportunities to improve efficiencies as well as develop programs to foster relationships with our vendors and field staff. I look forward to seeing how Marcie will grow with her new position.”

Marcie Booth Los Angeles Event Planner

We took a moment to chat with Marcie about her role at The Event Team and within the events industry. Take a moment to get to know her below!

TET: What do you love about Operations?
MB: I love that I get to interact with our clients and their guests. The reaction after they had a successful program always makes me smile!

TET: You have such a great relationship with our Los Angeles clients, staff, and vendors? What’s the key to building relationships in this industry?
MB: I try to be open and understand what their needs are. I’m not a miracle worker, but I try my best to make their event, logistically perfect from start to finish.

TET: You’ve been in the Los Angeles event industry for several years now. What changes have you noticed?
MB: The biggest changes are that people are more savvy and want to be more a part of the planning process. Five years ago, you could be given a budget and a vision and run with it; now, I’ve noticed that with the concept of Pinterest, planners want to give you specific ideas on their vision.

TET: You’ve operated programs for The Event Team from Santa Barbara to San Diego…what has been your favorite event so far and why?
MB: Wow, that’s hard because I’ve operated some pretty cool events! I have two that stand out: the first would be a beautiful cocktail reception at the Ritz Carlton Marina Del Rey. It was my first chance to have real input on an event at The Event Team; the overhead lanterns were beautiful and added a fun California chic look to the reception. The second would be one client where I got to work in Los Angeles and Orange County all in one program!

Ritz Carlton Marina del Rey Events

TET: When you’re not operation flawless events for The Event Team DMC, you curate a lifestyle blog called Curvy Girls Can. Tell us more!
MB: Curvy Girls Can is a lifestyle blog that is all about being a self-loving, confident woman with curves! It doesn’t matter your size or the kind of curves you have, my mission is help women love the skin they’re in and sharing my personal experiences of food prep and fitness to beauty tips and dating.
