Connected by walkable palm tree-lined plazas, the Anaheim Marriott, Hilton Anaheim, Sheraton Park Anaheim Hotel and brand new AAA 4-Diamond Westin Anaheim Resort offer world class dining, nightlife, spa and other services for attendee needs right at their fingertips.

Just half a mile beyond the ACC Campus, attendees can find walkable options for dining, entertainment, shopping and other local experiences perfect for before-or-after meeting adventures.

Event Security at the Anaheim Convention Center

  • To ensure safety of attendees during events, the ACC requires crowd control/security personnel at every event.

For the interest of public safety, the ACC works with the Anaheim Police Officers or Armed Guard Services for select events.
