Lights, Camera, Action… LA!

0 Comment

The Eventive Marketing team had the pleasure of being invited to experience LA like never before.

After a short flight (equipped with in-flight wifi service!) from Toronto to Los Angeles, VIP transfers took us to our home for the night at JW Marriott LA LIVE.

What a great surprise that the downtown area of LA has completely changed. The Staples Centre-host of the Grammy Awards, home of the KINGS, CLIPPERS and LAKERS and the NOKIA centre home of the EMMYs right next door, keeps downtown in a constant buzz.

But more importantly, the JW Marriott and Ritz Carlton LA LIVE are within walking distance of all of these great experiences and other great venues for incentives and group functions.

Our hosts for the night in LA gave us a full overview of the area, including a chance to see behind the scenes at the Staple Centre, before treating us to a wonderful cocktail party at the top of the Ritz Carlton, followed by dinner on the terrace of the JW Marriot (star spotting anyone?)

The next morning, we had a full site inspection of both properties at LA LIVE, then toured Hollywood and the surrounding area with our hosts. To answer the question that pops into everyone’s mind… Yes! we saw a few stars; including Canadian celebrity, Michael J Fox.

We then headed to Terrenea – what we would describe as a hidden gem only 40 minutes from LA. A short, scenic drive and far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the city for a very different experience. The LA and Terrena would make a great multi-city combination for any group.

The resort is set on a sea side cliff and just 5 years young. Every view is breath taking, with whales breaching in front of you and sea lions frolicking on the shore, both city and nature lovers will enjoy the serenity of this paradise

The food (farm fresh to table) was out of this world! The chef took great pride in all that he prepared and served – he was at every event to make sure all was good! His creativity and passion truly shows through his food.

There are plenty of on-site activities to participate in at the resort – golf, sea kayaking, spa treatments, hiking, paddle boarding, three pools, and nature lessons. All of which were amazing!

After a jammed packed 3 days we headed back to Canada and had to said good bye to our wonderful California Hosts. At home, we were buzzing with nothing but great things to say and share.

If you are looking to make the STARS of Your Company feel like SUPERSTARS let us know because after this experience we can make that happen for you too!! #WeWillMakeYOUaSTAR!!
