Are you an Industry Vendor?
Effective event networking isn’t about how many business cards and emails you can collect. It’s about walking away with at least a handful of people you genuinely want to reach out to afterward… People you wouldn’t normally have met before. Thanks to our mix of local excursions and unique get-togethers, you’ll rub shoulders with others in a way you haven’t before. Expect the kind of hallway conversations that lead to lifelong friendships.

The last thing we want to do is invite you to L.A. and have you sit in a conference room all day. Our memorable excursions, mixers, and immersive, after-dark soirees are what make RestaurantSpaces a breeding ground for real and lasting connections.
Stay tuned for what’s in store for 2020…
DTLA Food Tour
On this guided Downtown LA food tour, we visited six unique stops showcasing the best of the growing, diverse DTLA food scene. Thanks to extensive and delicious research from local expert foodies, our attendees were able to sample the ultimate best-of on the scene. We also enjoyed exposure to some of the city’s finest architecture and iconic buildings.
Hollywood Sign Hike & Picnic
An up-close view of the Hollywood Sign is the perfect way to enhance a visit to LA. Our hike to the iconic landmark and Griffith Park Observatory ended with a gourmet picnic lunch in the park. Taking in breathtaking 360° views from high atop the hills of this sprawling urban paradise, the glitter of Hollywood and more, we finished off with an insider’s tour of the world-famous Griffith Observatory.
Our RestaurantSpaces Rocks! party was a huge hit and an unforgettable night. It kicked off with craft cocktails and California cuisine at Clifton’s Republic — an iconic building first opened in the 30s. Then, just when attendees thought the night was winding down, Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo took to the stage for an exclusive, intimate performance.
“Feels like a family reunion at every conference (a family I want to see!) Attended by young and senior brands. Bringing together the best of the Hospitality Industry.”
