People are talking about meeting in Riverside!

"Working with Riverside Convention Center staff during both the planning and onsite phases of the 2016 Annual Convention was an absolute pleasure. Not only were all details for the event executed perfectly, RCC staff did everything possible to ensure that League staff were well taken care of. The meetings industry would do well to take their cue from RCC."

"We continue to have our events here because of the customer service and the staff. We are always so pleased with the attitude of the staff and nothing is ever said no to. The entire staff is always ready to help, check on our staff and the Attendees, and makes the event so seamless. We are honored to work with you and we appreciate all of the hard work your team does to make our events as successful as they are. Your customer service is truly above reproach."

"The RCVB is a huge asset to the city of riverside! I cannot thank their team enough for the highest level of service and hospitality provided to our group. It was a joy to work with them! Jamil was the best banquet professional I have ever worked with, he is a class act, constant provider of solutions and a joy to work with! The food was delicious – thank you chef Brad Martin! Security was top-notch. We loved Nelson he was always on-point and took great care of our team! … RCC – beautiful, modern facility; and amazing staff that made our event one for the record books!"

“Downtown Riverside is a hidden gem! It truly is the perfect location for a mid-sized conference and, once you see and experience it, you truly get it. The Riverside Convention & Visitors Bureau and Riverside Convention Center always go the extra mile for us as I believe they do for every client. That’s not something we, as meeting planners, see every day. The Center lays out beautifully without being overwhelming and is surrounded by multiple hotels for accommodating room blocks, including the Historic Mission Inn & Spa, and by amazing and walkable restaurants and shops. It’s easy to do business with Riverside and the team there helps us to stretch association business dollars through added value benefits and reasonable menu prices. I can’t say enough about my past experiences there and… we already have contracts booked well into the future. I encourage all of my right-sized clients to consider Riverside and, when they do, they never look back."

"The team at Riverside Convention Center (RCC) were true partners in the success of our event.  Each year we convene 400+ of our autism experts in California for two days at our Summit of the California Autism Professional Training And Information Network (CAPTAIN).  The RCC team was easy to work with, incredibly flexible and highly responsive to our specific needs throughout the whole process from beginning to end.  The team was also sensitive to our budget and provided us with an incredible experience that made our attendees feel valued.  RCC is such a great facility and match that we are returning for our second CAPTAIN Summit without hesitation."

"Thank you so much for the hospitality and courtesy you and your staff showed the former members of the 2nd Bombardment Squadron (Heavy) in planning and staging our reunion dinner on October 12, 2023. As you may be aware, the squadron was deactivated at March Air Force Base in 1982 and its remaining "D" model B-52's were flown to the aircraft boneyard. Our members flex and sat alert during the latter part of the cold war. We are deeply grateful for the personalized assistance provided by Executive Assistant Amy Dryver, Convention Services Coordinator Jessica Barron, Executive Chef Brad Martin and his culinary staff, Victor and the bartending staff, Nancy and the wait staff, the reception team and everyone who made this such a memorable experience. The dinner was everything we hoped for and more and enriched the experience our members enjoyed during their return to Riverside and March Air Force Base. We look forward to recommending the Riverside Convention Center to our family and friends for future events!"
