Temecula speed dating

The day began with a co-hosted lunch with our friends from the Park City Convention & Visitors Bureau, continued with one-on-one appointments and ended with an elegant dinner.

Smart Mart attendees capped off the evening with several wine choices, such as a sparkling syrah and a port, courtesy of South Coast Winery Resort & Spa in Temecula, Calif., and entertainment from a talented singer and guitarist provided by Michael George Music Events, Inc.

The room was stunning, as our two, 50-person tables spread across the 5,000-square-foot ballroom and were covered in rose petals framing beautiful floral arrangements by local florist and designer, CJ Matsumoto and Sons.

After our delicious first course of pepper-crusted ahi tuna on whipped avocado, the Smart Meetings team pulled another trick out of our sleeves and asked all of our hotel partners to move to a new seat on the opposite table, providing yet another opportunity for networking.

And be sure to snap a shot of the top of the balloon as it inflates. Speaking of photos, our expert crew are great photographers and will take your photo if needed.

At breakfast you'll receive a complimentary "2 for 1" Wine Tasting Ticket to Vindemia Winery.

Attendees—45 meeting planners and 45 hotel and destination representatives—started the afternoon by playing a professional version of speed dating with mini-meetings at 10 minutes each, pictured above.
