The west coast is the best coast to do big business. On November 1-3, 2023, qualified representatives from CVBs, hotels, and convention centers will gather at Connect West to meet one-on-one with top-notch meeting planners from around the region. This is the premier B2B conference for event professionals based in California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico. Join us in San Francisco and walk away with business leads and connections that only Connect events can provide.
I loved the speed dating format, and learning about new destinations and suppliers that you usually don’t see in the big conferences was totally worth it.
