Destination Management in California

Our Destination Management Services

Two things are certain: California’s nickname “The Golden State” is indisputably deserved, and Relevé Unlimited is your ultimate California event and destination management partner.

The Gold Rush inspired our home state’s nickname, and Relevé works to find every event’s “Eureka” moments – transcending touchpoints that let your guests know just how important they are to your organization.

While we have operated programs on special request from our repeat clients all over the world, Relevé Unlimited has nearly a quarter century of experience in designing Southern California destination incentive travel and meetings (our silver anniversary is in 2016) from our home base in Santa Barbara County.

Let Relevé Unlimited bring our American Riviera style to your next event!

Santa Barbara, Ventura, and Ojai

Nestled in Central California between the chaparral-covered slopes of the Santa Ynez Mountains and the clear blue shores of the Pacific Ocean, Santa Barbara is truly the American Riviera. Oceanfront views, majestic mountains, and a colorful culture boasting multiple festivals, fine wine, and fabulous food – Santa Barbara lends her relaxed sophistication and style to your special event.

Just southeast of Santa Barbara is Ventura and the Ojai Valley, which provided the Shangri-La setting for famed director Frank Capra’s film “Lost Horizon” (1937). Shangri-La is defined as “an imaginary place where life approaches perfection: utopia” and Relevé will help you deliver an ideal experience for your guests.

We proudly work with the following preferred properties in Santa Barbara & Ventura Counties and Ojai:

Santa Barbara
Santa Ynez Valley
Westlake Village
Napa & Sonoma

The Napa Valley and Sonoma County are rich in history of both native peoples and Spanish and American settlers, who originally were farmers. Over the past few decades the region has been transformed into two of the most well known viticultural area in the United States, with over 400 wineries in each area. Proximity to the San Francisco Bay area and Sacramento airports make it a favorite destination for Californians and travelers from everywhere.


With many beautiful accommodations and restaurants to choose from, it makes an excellent corporate gathering destination for groups of all sizes, whether seeking the vineyard and wine experience or just relaxing in beautiful surroundings. From the City of Napa in the south end of the Napa Valley to Calistoga in the north, and Sonoma to Rockpile the area is chock full with interesting culinary and enological delights. Covering over 2400 square miles, contemplating a meeting or incentive travel program can be overwhelming for out-of-area planners. All the more reason to let Relevé Unlimited simplify your planning – we know just the right activities and venues to suit your particular group event goals.


Some of our preferred meeting resorts include:

Napa – South Valley
Napa – North Valley
Napa – Mid-Valley

Southern California (south of Ventura County to California’s border with Mexico) is known throughout the world for her golden beaches, “contemporary casual” style and her warm Mediterranean climate year-round.

To meet continuing increased demand for our services, Relevé Unlimited’s centrally located Orange County office serves our Orange, Los Angeles, and San Diego County programs.

The second-largest city in California, San Diego is the birthplace of California and is known for her history, mild year-round climate (San Diego is one of the top-ten best climates in the Farmers’ Almanac and is one of the two best summer climates in America as scored by The Weather Channel), extensive beaches, and her beautiful natural deep-water harbor. In recent years, San Diego has emerged as a healthcare and biotechnology development center.

Los Angeles

In the early 1900s, motion picture production companies from New York and New Jersey started moving to the Los Angeles area for good weather and longer days – and the magic of movies and television still make LA the entertainment capital of the world.

Covering a sprawling 503 square miles from the Beach Cities, Santa Monica and the Westside; to Downtown LA, Beverly Hills and Hollywood; to Pasadena and “The Valley” – contemplating a meeting or incentive travel program in Los Angeles can be overwhelming for out-of-area planners. All the more reason to let Relevé Unlimited simplify your planning – we know just the right activities and venues to suit your particular group event goals.
