Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center
300 East Ocean Boulevard
Long Beach is a waterfront playground located right in the heart of Southern California. Here you can experience it all: a deep-sea adventure at the Aquarium of the Pacific, whale watching on the water, shopping in one of the city’s many unique districts, a tour of coastal breweries, a vibrant foodie scene, and so much more.
There are many great hotels in and around the Long Beach area offering comfortable and convenient accommodation for all guests, and an opportunity for FTE Global 2023 attendees to meet and network organically, during their downtime.
Rooms are limited, so we recommend all delegates who are yet to make their reservations do so at their earliest opportunity. FTE-arranged discounted room rates are no longer available.
Please see below a list of hotels in close proximity of the Long Beach Convention Center:
- Hyatt Regency Long Beach
- Renaissance Long Beach
- Courtyard by Marriott Long Beach Downtown
- Hyatt Centric the Pike Long Beach
- Hotel Maya
- The Westin Long Beach
We are aware of a number of unauthorised service providers, including 'Housing Services', 'Exhibition Housing Management' and 'Trade Show Housing' making contact with attendees to offer hotel reservation services. These companies charge significant booking and credit card fees and can enact stringent cancellation policies. This is unfortunately beyond our control, and we urge all attendees to avoid making their reservations via these sites.
General Visa requirements
As an attendee of Future Travel Experience Global 2023, please note the United States has been operating since 2010 the Visa Waiver Program whereby requirements for travelling visa-free have been enhanced. Nationals of Visa Waiver Program countries will still be eligible to travel without a visa but will have to obtain an approved travel authorisation prior to their travel to the United States.
The Department of Homeland Security and the United States Customs and Border Protection have provided a secure public website with an automated form for you, or a third party, to complete in order to apply for a travel authorisation. Once you enter the required information on the secure website, your application is processed by the system to determine if you are eligible to travel to the United States under the Visa Waiver Program without a visa.
The system will provide you with an automated response, and prior to boarding, a carrier will electronically verify with the United States Customs and Border Protection that you have an approved travel authorisation on file.
Please complete your ESTA application at least 72 hours prior to departure to avoid inconvenience at the airport and to allow sufficient time to apply for a full Visa should your Visa waiver not be authorised.
To apply for your ESTA or for more information please visit: https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/esta/
