Carmel Mission Inn Launches Meeting Planner Video – Sunset Center Begins Meeting Facilities Renovation Designed to Target Boutique Conferences and Meetings


Carmel, CA, April 5, 2012 – Carmel Mission Inn announces the release of the latest installment to their online video series. With an emphasis on the meetings and special events market, this video provides a vivid visual palette for crafting “boutique events” around one of the most exquisite destinations in the world. All the elements featured are within a radius of only a few miles of Carmel California and the Village of Carmel by the Sea.

The video highlights and introduces Carmel’s historic Sunset Center, as a “boutique conference venue” for up to 200 people. The Sunset Center is currently under renovation of its 10,000 square feet of meeting space with a target completion date of July 2012. The Sunset Center also hosts a world-class 718-seat theatre, making it a truly unique and interesting Carmel-by-the-Sea meeting and special events venue. Catering for these events can be provided by Il Fornaio or several other high end restaurateurs from the Carmel by the Sea area.  Lodging accommodations are provided by the Carmel Mission Inn with its 165 guestrooms in conjunction with many of the smaller boutique hotels in Carmel by the Sea.

Viewers will also enjoy an overview of leisure and activity options. For teambuilding: the Land Rover Experience, Rancho Canada Golf Club, Point Lobos State Reserve and Adventures by the Sea. A-retail-fantasy-come-true takes in The Barnyard Shopping Village, Crossroads Shopping Center, and quaint shops and galleries of Carmel-by-the-Sea. Local wines can be sampled and purchased at Chateau Julien, the Carmel Wine Walk and Caraccioli Wineries and sumptuous dining is showcased at the rustic, romantic Casanova.

It should be noted that this video is just a brief overview of the many fine opportunities for visitors to Carmel and the Monterey Peninsula. These rich arrays of options all surround the Carmel Mission Inn, the largest full-service hotel in Carmel. Unique among Carmel hotels, it is especially suited for a group stay, with 165 guestrooms and its own 4,500 square feet of meeting space. “Our goal is that meeting planners perceive Carmel not just as a vacation destination but a viable and unique meeting destination. Carmel is overflowing with all the elements needed for a professional and memorable event” says Bob Buescher, the hotel’s General Manager.  “We’ve created this video because words just wouldn’t do it justice.”
