Pechanga Resort & Casino Takes on a Major Expansion to Create an Ultimate Meeting Destination in Temecula Valley Southern California Wine Country

What guests search for in Las Vegas will now be found in Temecula at the #1 casino in America, ranked by USA Today. Pechanga Resort & Casino is its own premier destination within Temecula Valley Southern California Wine Country, just 90 minutes from Los Angeles and 60 minutes from San Diego, Orange County and Palm Springs. Currently Pechanga has 53,000 square feet of meeting/convention space, including a 21,476 square foot ballroom. If this doesn't convince a planner to book at Pechanga, soon planners will have more compelling reasons to hold a meeting in Temecula Valley Southern California Wine Country. A $285 million expansion is expected to be completed by the end of 2017 and will heighten the entire meeting experience.

• A new total of 250,000 square feet of meeting/event space (indoor and outdoor) featuring a 40,000 square foot Event Center and 1,100 total resort rooms, groups can also look forward to a luxury stand-alone two story spa and salon, and a resort-style pool complex with eight pool areas and two new restaurants, as well as other additions.
• Cutting-edge technology will be added, including:
   - In-room tablets with a concierge app
   - Smartphone plug-ins with TV for streaming video
   - Meeting room technology
   - Top-of-the-line sound/lighting and energy efficient tech 
• Expanded meeting room lay-out capabilities
   - Theatre in the round - built-in pull-out bleacher style seating available for large presentations
• With the expansion, the new space will be one of the largest in California, and the amenities/entertainment options will far exceed the capabilities of most other California properties. Expansion details.

"Our sales team is proud to offer one of the largest resort meeting and convention spaces on the west coast with more than 250,000 square feet of indoor outdoor space. We know that when we schedule a meeting with a group, we're not just putting a hold on the date. Instead, we're with them every step of the way - from the initial booking all the way up until they're checked out of the resort," said Scott Wilson, director of sales at Pechanga Resort & Casino.
"Our guests have the option to de-stress between work meetings at our spa, award-winning golf course, our many restaurants, bars, Comedy Club, and gaming at the #1 rated casino in the U.S., ranked by USA Today. Pechanga Resort & Casino offers our clients a large variety of choices with something for everyone at our AAA four diamond rated resort -aside from our meeting spaces."

Groups come to Pechanga because it's not just a meeting space - it's a destination. Groups can add on golf packages, spa/wellness packages, entertainment for one of our shows, group Bingo games (ultra-modern Bingo facility) poker lessons and/or group poker games. Guests can play in our 200,000+ square foot casino floor, which is larger than any Vegas casino floor. Dining packages can also be added - there are more than a dozen of dining options available right on the property.

Pechanga also offers Stay & Play packages with shuttle services offering hot air ballooning, wine tours, additional dining, and brewery tours amongst other entertainment opportunities. Temecula Valley Southern California Wine Country is an ideal venue for meetings with its inspiring open spaces, outdoor and indoor group activities, wine and craft beer tastings, championship golf courses, live entertainment and local, farm fresh dining options.
