BRIEFLY IN THE NEWS I t was four years ago that The Pavilion sprouted up on the grounds at Indian Wells Golf Resort – and it has been one big success story ever since. The venue has hosted a va- riety of events over the years, including weddings, recep- tions, corporate outings, wine extravaganzas and more. "There's nothing else like it in the Coachella Valley," said Director of Sales and Marketing Michael Tebbetts. "It's a unique venue that of- fers our guests the opportu- nity to start with a blank canvas and to enhance the space with their own theme." A recent renovation and expansion included an 800- square-foot suite that can be used for a bridal salon, a green room or private space for meetings. In addition, a 25,000-square-foot event lawn that can accommodate up to 1,000 guests was added to the east side of The Pavil- ion. The south-facing patio of The Pavilion was also ex- panded, providing more space for outdoor activities as well as spectacular views. > clicK HErE to learn more. Pavilion MarKS 4-yEar annivErSary
