Greater Palm Springs is touting its 300-plus days of sunshine annually, range of accommodations, meeting spaces, venues and attractions, and outdoor activities as reasons why it's a great meetings destination. Ahead of Global Meetings Industry Day on April 11, here are some of the new venues for meetings, events and conferences in the destination:

Metate Ranch events by Desert Adventures: Metate Ranch is a secluded 800-acre private property located within the Coachella Valley that will be reopening this fall for group bookings. From Jeep tours to hiking expeditions, the property offers an array of team-building activities and on-site meeting spaces outdoors in the beautiful desert landscape.

Palm Springs Convention Center: It is the first convention center in California to become autism certified through the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES). The 261,000-square-foot venue has undergone training ensuring its staff are equipped with the skills and resources necessary to create a more welcoming environment for autistic and sensory-sensitive patrons.

Thompson Palm Springs: Slated to open this fall, the Thompson Palm Springs is located in the heart of downtown Palm Springs. Designed by B2 Architecture + Design and SMS Architecture, the 168-key hotel aims to attract a diverse clientele of influential locals and globetrotters and promises to embrace the heritage and culture of Palm Springs. The hotel offers more than 8,000 square feet of event space that is accompanied by a dedicated team of staff to assist with all planning needs. High-speed Wi-Fi, unique culinary offerings, and more are also offered to elevate events.

Tommy Bahama Miramonte Resort & Spa: This transformed Indian Wells resort debuted in late 2023 with 215 guestrooms and villa suites with a tropical design aesthetic and spread across 11 expansive acres. With over 35,000 square feet of flexible indoor and outdoor spaces, connecting lawns and terraces with beautiful views, customizable catering menus and breakout spaces, the property offers the perfect resort oasis feel for a meeting. Visitors can enjoy three pools and cabanas, California-inspired delights at Grapefruit Basil, inspired treatments at Spa Rosa, and exclusive Tommy Bahama merchandise at Rosa Boutique.
