The wraparound windows at The Lobster restaurant offer one of the most iconic views in all of Southern California: the Pacific Ocean and the historic Santa Monica Pier with its illuminated Ferris wheel. Now with a refurbished and contemporary redesign, the view from inside is pretty stellar, too. There are several options for group dining, from a private enclosed terrace that seats 50, an inside private dining room for up to 100, or a buyout of the entire restaurant, which accommodates 220 guests for a standing reception. “What makes The Lobster a special and unique place for events is the guest gets the whole experience,” says Lynne Thomas, director of sales and marketing. “We offer amazing views, great service, an extensive wine list and scrumptious, high-end sustainable food. And it’s the best restaurant around to catch breathtaking and gorgeous sunsets, not to mention frequent celebrity sightings.”  

Santa Ana, California is an ideal destination in Southern California, centrally located in Orange County. Founded in 1869, Santa Ana is one of the oldest cities in the area, featuring original architecture and a historic downtown. With history comes culture—hosting a community that offers authentic Hispanic flavors and an art scene that is a mix of funky and folk.

 

The key to maximizing success (and limiting risk) is for marketers to better understand how their audiovisual team works. 

It is almost event day. You are excited, but you are also stressed.

You have spent the last few months preparing for your live stream: that big product launch, quarterly Town Hall, or video conference that your boss needs to go well. Your marketing and communications teams have been working hard, and everything appears ready.

 

With a beachside locale and a laidback, surf-town vibe, Ventura County Coast is awash with inspiration for your next meeting and event. The region is home to four communities— Camarillo, Oxnard, Ventura, and Port Hueneme—and is ideal for groups from 10 to 1,000.
