Fairplex Offers Full-Service Event Center Year-Round

Indoor and Outdoor Facilities in a Tree-Lined Park Setting Are Ideal for Any Season

POMONA, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 18, 2011) - Fairplex hosts over 3 million visitors each year for a wide array of events, concerts, consumer and trade conferences and the ever popular L.A. County Fair, on its sprawling 543-acre campus. This flexible, diverse and customer-friendly event center is situated just nine miles from the Ontario Airport with convenient access to Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino and Orange Counties.

Fairplex features numerous indoor event venues such as the 11,000 square-foot banquet hall in the Sheraton Fairplex Hotel, in addition to more creative event locations such as the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum. Large column-free exhibit halls are also available, and in late fall 2011 the Sheraton Fairplex Conference Center will open to accommodate large conventions and conferences. This eco-friendly conference center will be IACC and LEED certified and has been designed to offer the technology and amenities that today's event planners demand for their sustainable and education-focused conventions.

Various outdoor venues also delight visitors at the Fairplex throughout the year. The 5/8-mile oval Fairplex Park horse race track and its grassy infield are perfect for concerts and festivals and can accommodate up to 10,000 in the grandstands. More intimate gatherings can be hosted at the Wine and Spirits Marketplace, while the KOA RV Park accommodates those who prefer to bring their own accommodations with them when they travel.

Fairplex is also an ideal filming location for feature films, television, commercials and still photography. Complete with a 700' "sound stage" with 50' ceilings, five million square feet of unobstructed asphalt parking, horse arenas, stables, barns and farms, Fairplex is ready for its close-up, just a short drive from Hollywood and part of the 30 Mile Studio Zone.
