Next time you’re planning a trip to the Golden State, don’t overlook the opportunities a smaller destination offers. From the gorgeous year-round weather to meeting and event facilities at affordable prices, Camarillo, CA is a great destination to host your next event. Centrally located in Ventura County, Camarillo is just an hour northwest of Los Angeles and 40 minutes southeast of Santa Barbara. From skydiving to ultra lights, vintage WWII aircrafts to a rising culinary scene, Camarillo’s off-the-clock attractions are what make this destination unique.
Make it an unforgettable trip with a visit to the Channel Islands National Park; an island chain located 20 miles off the California Coast nicknamed the “Galapagos of North America.” Its distance from the mainland has enabled endemic species to thrive, as the islands remain mostly untouched by technological advances. Explore nature and kayak through the “Painted Cave” of Santa Cruz Island–one of the largest sea caves in the world, or hike to the light station on Anacapa Island–recreational opportunities abound in this lesser known national park.
With over 20 diverse meeting spaces, Camarillo can accommodate a multitude of gatherings with a range of traditional conference rooms to unique outdoor venues. Hospitality includes 11 different lodging options consisting of comfortable hotels, affordable motels and a boutique Inn in the heart of Old Town. Hampton Inn & Suites offers 1,400 sq. ft. of event space that can be divided into two breakout rooms for corporate meetings. Courtyard Marriott, Residence Inn and Bella Capri Inn & Suites offer space for intimate gatherings.

Aimed for completion in late 2019, this lodging destination will be the perfect meeting space for small to medium-sized conferences.
