Home to the largest convention center on the West Coast, Anaheim prioritizes the safety of attendees on all fronts. Here are a few reasons why meeting planners choose Anaheim to host their world renowned conventions and events annually.

- Anaheim is ranked #1 in safety score in the west coast.
Advisor Smith listed Anaheim at #9 for “Top Safest Large Cities in the USA”.

What does the Anaheim Convention Center do to ensure safety of convention attendees?
The Anaheim Convention Center’s on-site 24-hour security ensures a safe environment for your event. They work closely with city services including Anaheim Police as well as Anaheim Fire & Rescue. The convention center requires events to provide a security plan to ensure all safety concerns are discussed in advance.
How does the Anaheim Convention Center Campus promote safety in attendee experiences?
The Anaheim Convention Center Campus encompasses four world-class hotels, totaling 3,705 rooms just steps from the convention center, which means attendees can sleep, eat and meet without taking a car or crossing a street.
Just half a mile beyond the ACC Campus, attendees can find walkable options for dining, entertainment, shopping and other local experiences perfect for before-or-after meeting adventures.
Additionally, Anaheim Regional Transportation (ART) provides guest transportation assistants in the esplanade and around the Grand Plaza to ensure safe boarding on buses.
What are the latest COVID-19 restrictions?
Anaheim and Orange County returned to business as usual with limited exceptions for mega events:
Effective April 1, 2022, the California Department of Public Health:
- Strongly recommends attendees to provide one of the following prior to attending an event:
- Proof of vaccination
- OR a negative antigen COVID-19 test within one day of the event

Out of an abundance of caution, event organizers may choose to develop health and safety guidelines that are stricter than current public health guidance.
