LOS ANGELES BizBash issue release celebrations always gather a lively group of professional planners, and this time was no exception. On February 3, Conga Room owner Brad Gluckstein hosted nearly 400 planners and special guests to recognize the Top 100 Events in Southern California as chosen by BizBash’s editors.
Opened in December 2008 as part of L.A. Live, the new downtown sports and entertainment district, the 15,000-square-foot Conga Room contains a variety of private event spaces, including the Boca Restaurant and a V.I.P. lounge overlooking Nokia Plaza. Alive with Latin flavor, the Conga Room has a large dance floor, as well as a D.J. booth suspended above the action.
Guests were entertained by salsa demonstrations and lessons while feasting on a wide array of Latin-inspired food and drinks provided by Wolfgang Puck Catering, the venue’s caterer. The lavish buffet menu included fresh guacamole, empanadas, yucca, and tropical fruit platters.
