Much More Than Presentations
ONE-ON-ONE STRATEGY MEETINGS
Wouldn’t it be fun to travel to San Diego and sit in a conference center all day? Yeah, didn’t think so! Surfing lessons, Hot Air Balloon rides, a Brewery tour and our RetailSpaces Rocks! party with surprise musical acts are just a few of the memorable experiences we have planned.
Immerse yourself in San Diego’s famous surf culture and meet us at the shore for a different type of ‘board’ meeting. With the help of a professional instructor, you’ll spend the afternoon learning basic fundamentals, wave riding skills, and surfer etiquette (read: rules of the road). New to the wet suit? Don’t fret – this event is designed for all skill levels – 1st timers to experts.
Brewery Tour & BBQ
Hop on board our private tour bus and enjoy a true VIP behind the scenes experience at 2 of Carlsbad’s local breweries. You’ll be guided by an expert to learn the craft of beer making and how to distinguish between the different varieties. Pair your tastings with a savory BBQ lunch and cheers your industry peers to a fun-filled afternoon!
Carlsbad Foodie Tour
Stroll through the streets of Carlsbad Village on a 3-hour walking tour. Enjoy the mix of museums, art galleries and vibrant street murals as we make our way to visit 8 unique eateries. We’ll sample local favorites, learn about California wines and receive an insiders view into the history and architecture that defines the village. You’ll feel just like a local by the conclusion of this unforgettable cultural & culinary experience, so go ahead – treat yo’ self!
Join us as we light up the resort and rock the night away at our infamous RetailSpaces Rocks! party. Mingle over craft cocktails, SoCal cuisine, and hot air balloon rides. Just when you think the night is winding down, supergroup Ezra Ray Hart will take the stage for an intimate performance. But the party doesn’t end there- because the spotlight’s on you next as we move indoors for Live Band Karaoke.
“RetailSpaces is where you go to get ideas to be ahead of the game. Compared to other events, it’s a lot more fun and easy to talk to people here.”
