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.

Hotel Accommodation

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 2024 attendees to meet and network organically, during their downtime.

A discounted rate has been agreed for selected nights at the following properties:

  • Hyatt Regency Long Beach - $295 per night. To secure your room, please use the link here.
  • The Westin Long Beach - $289 per night. To secure your room, please use the link here.
  • Courtyard Downtown Long Beach - $277 per night. To secure your room, please use the link here.

Please note, discounted accommodation is available exclusively to Future Travel Experience (FTE) Global attendees, and for a very limited period only. We would strongly recommend making your hotel reservation as soon as possible to benefit from reduced rates. Once all discounted rooms have been filled, rates cannot be guaranteed and will be strictly subject to availability.


Attendees wishing to book accommodation should do so directly through the FTE/Mice Concierge website. We are aware that a number of unauthorised service providers, including “Housing Services,” “Exhibition Housing Management” and “Trade Show Housing” make 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 with any means other than that provided on this page.

General Visa requirements

As an attendee of Future Travel Experience Global 2024, 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/
