April 12, 2019 - The world’s largest luxury hotel brand, InterContinental Hotels Group, and market-leading meetings, event and hospitality technology provider Cvent, are excited to announce the first event of Cvent’s Elite Meetings Alliance 2019 series hosted at the InterContinental San Diego. The two-day event, which runs from Saturday, April 13 to Monday, April 15, brings qualified corporate and association event planners together with luxury hotel representatives and industry suppliers for one-on-one meetings, CMP accredited education sessions and unique networking opportunities.
“InterContinental San Diego offers groups a sophisticated new urban experience with amenities and refined service typically found at Southern California’s premier resorts,” said Director of Group Sales, Rachael Strong. “By attending the Elite Meetings Alliance at our venue, planners will see San Diego through fresh eyes, experiencing both the excitement of the city and the relaxation of the waterfront in a more intimate, more accessible downtown setting.”
Event attendees will enjoy first-class dining, a private property tour, and The InterContinental San Diego will host exclusive unique experiences including a farmer’s market-style luncheon utilizing the historic 45,000 sq. ft. Lane Field Park – the former baseball stadium of the San Diego Padres – and a Valle de Guadalupe-inspired Baja wine dinner on the property’s 4,500 sq. ft. Bayview Terrace.
“As industry-leading event professionals, Cvent Elite Meetings Alliance attendees expect a luxury setting and are looking for impactful experiences while onsite. Hosting the first event of our 2019 series at the InterContinental San Diego offers exactly that,” said Patrick Smith, Chief Marketing Officer at Cvent. “Our attendees are looking for venues that can deliver on providing a truly memorable event for their own clients and partners, and we are proud to host them at the InterContinental San Diego. This renowned property recognizes the importance of exceeding expectations and delivering exceptional service.”
