We have been providing convention housing services to the meeting and events industry for over 20 years.

Originally part of the Services Department of Visit Salt Lake (VSL), Orchid has been providing housing services to North America since 1999.  In 2006, The Housing Connection, LLC was established as a company separate from VSL.  In 2012, we changed our name to Orchid Event Solutions, and in 2016, to take advantage of the domain name for the meetings industry, we changed to Orchid.Events.

Orchid.Events has blossomed into one of the nation’s largest convention housing management companies, processing over 150,000 reservations annually and delivering 500,000 room nights to hotels throughout North America.

Privately owned, we are headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah, and our employee base extends to San Antonio, Texas; Chicago, Illinois; and San Diego, California. 

The Orchid team is committed to client service and creating a smooth experience for event attendees. We promise that working with us will generate an unparalleled experience that will exceed your expectations and allow you to focus on your event with confidence.
