Anaheim is a city in Orange County, California, part of the Los Angeles metropolitan area. As of the 2010 United States Census, the city had a population of 336,265, making it the most populated city in Orange County and the 10th-most populated city in California. Anaheim is the second-largest city in Orange County in terms of total land area (after Irvine) and is known for its theme parks (Dinsey Resort), convention center, and its two major sports teams: the NHL Anaheim Ducks ice hockey club and the MLB Angels baseball team.
Anaheim was founded by fifty German families in 1857 and incorporated as the second city in Los Angeles County on March 18, 1876. However, Orange County would later be split off from Los Angeles County in 1889. The city of Anaheim remained largely a rural community until Disneyland opened in the city in 1955. This led to the construction of several hotels and motels around the area, and residential districts in Anaheim soon followed. The city also developed into an industrial center, producing electronics, aircraft parts and canned fruit.
Anaheim’s city limits extend from Cypress in the west to the Riverside County line in the east and encompass a diverse collection of neighborhoods and communities. Anaheim Hills is a master-planned community located in the city’s eastern stretches that is home to many of the city’s affluent population. Downtown Anaheim has three historic districts, the largest of which is the Anaheim Colony. The Anaheim Resort, the commercial district, includes the Disneyland Resort, with its two theme parks, multiple hotels, and retail district. The Platinum Triangle, a neo-urban redevelopment district surrounding Angel Stadium, is planned to be populated with mixed-use streets and high-rises. Anaheim Canyon is an industrial district north of California State Route 91 and east of California State Route 57.
Anaheim’s primary income is based on a tourism economy. In addition to The Walt Disney Company being the city’s largest employer, the Disneyland Resort itself contributes about $4.7 billion annually to Southern California’s economy. It also produces a whopping $255 million in taxes every year. Another source of tourism is the Anaheim Convention Center, which is home to many important national conferences including, STARWEST Expo, Orange County Auto Show and many more. Many hotels, especially in the city’s Resort district, serve theme park tourists and conventiongoers.
The Anaheim Canyon business park makes up 63% of Anaheim’s industrial space and is the largest industrial district in Orange County. Anaheim Canyon is also home to the second-largest business park in Orange County. Anaheim Canyon houses 2,600 businesses, which employ over 55,000 workers.
Anaheim is home to the largest convention center on the west coast of the U.S.

Booth Designs Top Show Tips For Beginners
Are you looking to attend a show in Anaheim? Not sure how to start or even begin to understand the design for a 20×20 or 30×30? Well, look no further! Here at Booth Design Ideas, we have compiled seven key ways to help you get started.
Budget Based on Usage
Budget, Budget, Budget we cant say it enough. When it comes to looking into buying or renting and exhibit the first step is always budget. From $10,000 to $60,000 it’s always important to know what you can spend on a particular product. Specifically, if you don’t plan on exhibiting at shows more than once per year. Too many times companies end up buying something that is way above whats needed, or far under expectations. Resulting in many customers being upset and wasting their companies money.
Creation of a timeline is by far the most importantly underrated factor for first-time exhibitors. For many first-timers, 8-6 months out is the ideal time to have your booth or exhibit built. Too many times companies attempt to rush production and result in a lackluster product. However, by following this timeline it allows for potential problems to be fixed and creates a better process for production. Additionally, the overall timeline for the actual show itself is key. For first time exhibitors, allowing extra time for set up is highly recommended. Its often possible that equipment is not there on time or the loading dock is backed up. Thus, allowing that extra couple of hours can go along way. In conclusion, timing will be a key factor in having an extremely successful exhibit.
This next tip might be simple but is something a majority forget when signing up for a show. Many first-time exhibitors believe that the bigger the show the more people and the bigger the ROI. However, this can be misleading and leave your 20×20 overshadowed by an 80×80 with all the bells and whistles. To understand how to be successful, find a show in which you stand out and have a large enough audience for good return. Attempting to go to big or too small can have negative outcomes.
This next tip may sound simple but is something that many people largely overlook. Placement of your booth within a show can either be the death or saving grace for many first time exhibitors. Which in turn is why it’s ideal to understand the sweet spots to place your exhibit at your first show. A great example of one of these “sweet spots” is typically on the corners of a row. That can allow you two entrance points for clients and fantastic walk by traffic. Another great option for placement is at an entrance or exit from the show. However, typically these locations are in high demand and difficult to get. Lastly and not often thought of, our locations near bathrooms or food areas. These areas provide great focus points where people are typically waiting and looking for distractions.
The next tip we at Booth Design Ideas believe is all about staffing for the show on labor and showtime. For many beginners understanding the labor can be very confusing based on location. From set up times to mandatory break times, labor workers can present a complex problem. Which is why we suggest that people do ample research and consulting before choosing a labor force. Additionally, staffing your booth is just as important at a show. From making sure you’re not over-staffed or under-staffed. Along with choosing the right people to present your product. Research done beforehand is key to having a successful show.
The next tip is something that varies with state or geographic location. This being the use of Trade Show Unions at your next show. For many first time exhibitors, it can be very confusing and labor unions have very strict policies on what you can and cannot do. One example is with booth set pre-show. Here many union workers are guaranteed mandatory breaks and times they can work. So understanding when those breaks are is key to maximizing your time and money. Finally, understand the additional loading and unloading rates that may come into factor for your show.
For your first show, it is important not to only be creative but to also create an active experience. Many exhibitors forget to look at the show from the consumers perspective and create a booth based on what they think is important. However, to really keep the client interested in your product you have to create a consumer experience. This can be done in a number of ways, from giveaways to interactive games and applications. Typically, the more creative the better chance they will remember you!
