What We Do
The Beckman Center staff knows meetings. Event planners have a lot on their plates, and it's our job to make your job easier.

Beckman Courtyard 

The Complete Meeting Experience

The extras are standard at the Beckman Center.  Our well-equipped meeting rooms include many items that would be an additional cost at other venues. And should your event require something extra special, such as sign language translation or a tent on the lawn, we offer many additional service options.

Staffed to Serve You

All we do is events, and we know what is important to you. During your event, the staff will be completely devoted to you; they will not be busy taking care of hotel guests, vacation travelers, and spa clientele. The result is that your needs will be met promptly and cheerfully.

Technical Expertise

The Beckman Center has a full-time, on-site staff of certified professionals who love what they do. With more than 20 years of technical IT and AV experience, their capabilities are broad and deep. Whether your meeting attendees need basic meeting support, or the advanced capabilities of our auditorium, audio visual technicians will be onsite working your event.

Fabulous Food

Oh, the food! Ask anyone who has been to a meeting at the Beckman Center about the food and they are sure to rave about their experience. Guests have come to expect the best from our culinary team. Executive Chef Andy Strader directs a large, full-service kitchen which allows us to offer a wide range of menu choices, and a variety of dining options. Meal planning at the Beckman Center is easy and the results are completely reliable.

Convenient Location

In the heart of Orange County, three miles from the John Wayne Orange Country Airport (SNA), the setting of the Beckman Center is unique. Adjacent to the campus of the University of California, Irvine, the Beckman Center is close to walking trails and wilderness preserves, in a serene, retreat-like setting.
