SGMP was founded in 1981 and is the only national organization in the United States dedicated exclusively to government meetings.

The SGMP mission is to enhance and promote the expertise of government meeting professionals. Our objectives are to improve the quality of, and promote the cost-effectiveness of, government meetings.


Everyone loves a party, and there’s nothing like the good-time atmosphere at California’s top events. Here, you’ll find festivals, fairs, competitions, and championships worth adding to your itinerary or making destinations in themselves. Escape to food and wine extravaganzas in bucket-list destinations like Napa Valley and Yosemite. Take part in rock-the-world music festivals like Coachella near Palm Springs or Outside Lands in San Francisco.

Take part in rock-the-world music festivals like Coachella near Palm Springs or Outside Lands in San Francisco. See the stars walk by at film festivals and award shows in Los Angeles, whoop it up with the kids at classic country fairs in the Central Valley and watch ultimate athletes take on monster waves at Maverick’s or zoom across the state in Amgen Tour of California.

While many events have plenty of space for all, some, such as Laguna Beach’s Pageant of the Masters, often sell out well in advance, so pre-planning is essential (check websites for details on tickets and dates).

Set on an iconic stretch of the Central California coast, Monterey County has an abundance of beautiful wide-open spaces and unique places to accommodate government meetings from 10 to 3,000 attendees.  The Monterey County CVB looks forward to being your liaison to customize the destination’s diverse venues and activities for your programs.
