X Games 2023

From Kevin Peraza, pro-BMX rider—“I have been having so much fun here in Ventura! Taking home three medals this weekend is still the most insane feeling, and this is possibly the best X Games experience so far!”


From Valerie Ryan, X Games vice president of fan experience and hospitality —”It’s such a perfect venue. Right there on the beach. Whether you’re there live or you’re watching on air, the beach is right there as your backdrop. You can’t beat that setting. It’s so beautiful.”


From Jason Jewell, Managing Director of the LOSSAN Rail Corridor Agency —”We are thrilled to partner with X Games this summer and offer fans a 15 percent savings on train travel to the venue. We are also proud to unveil the first train wrap on the Pacific Surfliner in recent years in partnership with the X Games and Visit Ventura. This is an exciting new venture for us and we hope to partner with other brands and events similarly in the future.”

Amgen Tour of California
Anschutz Entertainment Group, AEG

“Working with your team at Visit Ventura was such a pleasure. Many thanks to Marlyss who was able to secure all of the hotel rooms we needed. We’re not always an easy group to house as the teams have specific needs and without the hotels!”


From Zach – “Ventura was great! Throughout the 2018 Amgen Tour of California planning, they [Ventura CVB] developed and executed marketing initiatives that were beyond expectations, elevating the Amgen Tour of California’s brand presence and race awareness, resulting in one of the best host city experiences the race has seen.”


From Elaine – “Marlyss Auster and Cheryl Bagby significantly impacted our highly successful Ventura race accommodations. They absolutely know their hotel properties – coupled with their developed understanding of the race’s needs – and they paired us perfectly with the properties in their market. We contracted with almost all of their hotel suggestions, and we were extremely happy with the venues and corresponding service. What really struck me was their commitment to our project and the long-term assistance over many months up until the race arrived and departed Ventura. They even posted welcome signs in all of the race hotels. We could not have asked for more from them. Using hotel lingo – I give them five stars. Many, many thanks to your team and we look forward to working with you all again soon in the very near future!”
