Development[edit]

They are working with the City of Anaheim and city leaders to create a parking lot that will protect the environment and add beautification to the area. The new lot will add 250 parking spaces and utilize natural energy resources such as solar power and sustainable materials.

History[edit]

The location was originally home to AirCall Wireless but then was transformed into the Business Expo Center due to the community's request to use the space for private, corporate, and public events. One of the first major events that the Business Expo Center hosted was for Volkswagen featuring the release of its newest Jetta model. The venue offers the use of meeting and training rooms, halls, showrooms, presentation rooms, and reception rooms. Since 2009, the venue has expanded to incorporate private large scale events.
