CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

“Santa Barbara’s fabulous reputation preceded it, so our attendees had high expectations. Those expectations were exceeded. The beauty of the area, the fantastic options for off-site events, as well as pre-and post-conference activities, and great hotel options make Santa Barbara one of those places that make meeting planners look really good. And the assistance we received from the Visit Santa Barbara team gave us confidence and filled any information gaps my participants or I had about the area.”
– The Realty Alliance

“Santa Barbara is a sophisticated destination for the five senses and best for groups who appreciate beauty and the good life.”
– HD, Meridican Incentive Consultants

“Santa Barbara is a new era destination. With today’s trend to shorter, more exclusive retreats or incentives, it’s a place where you’re able to offer a cultured and exclusive program while still staying relatively close to home. Its proximity to Los Angeles, fantastic hotels, great restaurants and vineyards rank Santa Barbara near the top of our US destinations.”
– LW, Cascadia Motivation Inc.

“Santa Barbara is a spectacular location for our incentive program.  It’s a unique blend of California beach atmosphere, history and wine country in one destination. We know that the setting will wow our attendees, and they will have a great experience in Santa Barbara.   Additionally,  Visit Santa Barbara is a one-stop-shop for event planning resources. I strongly recommend working with them to learn about the many options the destination offers.”
