It’s been home to everyone from Elvis to the LA Clippers, and hosted events ranging from large-scale conventions to yoga sessions on the plaza. You may know the Anaheim Convention Center (ACC) as the largest convention center on West Coast, or home to renowned events as The NAMM Show, Natural Products Expo West and WonderCon... but look again! Here are some facts that even Orange County natives may not know.

Putting the ACC’s Name Up in Lights

Lights, camera, ACC! The Anaheim Convention Center has served as the set for numerous movies, TV series, and commercials. The unique architecture has made the center the perfect backdrop. We know the ACC will “live long and prosper” as it was the set for Star Trek: Picard, plus other hits like Matchstick Men, Ocean’s Thirteen, and Semi Pro.

The ACC is Brewing Something Special

Whether you take your coffee black or with cream & sugar, coffee-loving attendees are in for a treat with on-site local brews. Catering serves Bodhi Leaf coffee products, a local roaster in Anaheim that works directly with farmers across the globe to serve sustainably sourced, high-quality coffee. It’s a quick, convenient option for attendees on the go.

The ACC Brings the Outdoors In

A breath of fresh air is all around. The ACC utilizes 100% outside air for publicly- occupied space and has one of the freshest air quality Green Campuses nationally. (Validated by an independent certified third party Indoor Air Quality consultant) Plus, it has Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certification for all buildings.
