As a banquet hall in Orange County, we host a lot of corporate conferences, and we can tell you firsthand that planning a corporate convention can come with several challenges. For instance, events that deliver multiple messages or last too long can exhaust and drain everyone involved. This can lead to attendees feeling as if they are being lectured to, rather than being genuinely involved in the gathering.

Lyon Air Museum is the perfect venue to host an airline theme event complete with pilot and stewardess servers, boarding pass invites, and suitcase props! Send out boarding pass invites.

Additionally servers can push food and beverage carts around for guests to order snacks and drinks during cocktail hour. Create a fun centerpiece like flower stuffed suitcases.
