Since 1961, Visit Anaheim (previously Anaheim/Orange County Visitor & Convention Bureau) has worked hand-in-hand with area hotels, attractions, transportation entities, restaurants, shops, and entertainment companies to promote Anaheim and maintain its status as a leading destination for conventions, meetings, and vacations. Since those early days, the organization has grown tremendously as Orange County’s main destination marketing organization.

Anaheim first became a meetings and conventions destination in 1967 with the construction of the iconic Anaheim Arena. Since then, the Anaheim Convention Center has gone through seven major expansion projects in addition to several cosmetic renovations. Each expansion added another major exhibit hall and meeting space. The latest additions include the recently unveiled 100,000-square-foot Grand Plaza, a uniquely Southern California outdoor space, adjacent to the Anaheim Convention Center, plus the addition of 200,000 square feet of additional newly-opened flexible meeting space. 

In 2015, the Anaheim/Orange County Visitor & Convention Bureau was transformed into Visit Anaheim. The new name is a result of a strategic rebranding initiative designed to more closely mirror the growth and transformation of our organization, community, and industry.

The team at Visit Anaheim handles convention and meeting sales, marketing, public relations, social media outreach, destination promotions, travel trade, convention services, convention housing and partnership services and administration. These efforts help in realizing the multi-billion-dollar per year tourism industry of Anaheim and Orange County.
