Great Meeting - An Eventective User from Burbank, California

Just seven miles from downtown Los Angeles, this amazing conference center is well-kept and elegant. This place was a great, private resort area that is close to the renowned studios of California. My company enjoyed the conference; we had a raffle and it was all great. And all the while, the friendly staff were on the ball, ready for anything. The food was fine, although I wouldn't give it a 5. The valet parking was extortionate, but nothing that killed us. The attentiveness of the employees and the whole staff rebounded that. I just loved the proximity of the conference center to other main cities. There were several attractions around us, obviously the studios (the center is in Burbank). The staff were very friendly to our company. When we were there, one of our coworkers dropped a cup of tea, and henceforth made a mess. Thanfully, their employees were on it in an instant. They never made bad remarks about my fellow employee (Mark is his name) for spilling the tea but offered him a second cup and a napkin. Everyone was pleased. I would definitely recommend the Pickwick Conference Center to anyone around the Metro Los Angeles Area or Burbank. Great time! The conference center is perfect for parties less than 1000 people.
