There are many properties near the Waldorf Astoria that can be contacted for room nights.  The only official block of rooms is at the Waldorf Astoria and we will not be adding rooms until if/when the block is sold out.

 

Hotel Room Requests

Only registered sponsors or attendees will have access to room reservations.  If you have requested a room, the hotel will contact you using the contact information provided during registration for payment information to confirm your room.

Restaurant Buy Outs

California MBA has an all-space hold and a non-compete clause that will be strongly enforced.  If a sponsor would like a restaurant buy-out they can request by contacting Jennifer.Alliss@waldorfastoria.com

Outdoor space for sponsor receptions

Sponsors have the opportunity to host dinners and/or receptions in California MBA held outdoor spaces.  They will be offered on a first come, first served basis.

Hotel Capacity and Masks

As of June 15, 2021, the Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach Resort will be open fully.  All meeting spaces, outdoor spaces, and restaurants will be at full capacity.  Until further notice the mask mandate will still be enforced inside the common indoor areas of the hotel.

Networking Tables/Exhibit hall

As a sponsor, you have the option to secure a networking table.  This table will be approximately 60” round with up to 10 chairs and it will be draped.  This year, there will not be a designated exhibit hall, so sponsors will not need to ship large pop-up booths, though if you have a meeting space (Platinum and Titanium) you can decorate it as you see fit.
