San Francisco Travel
Flexible venues in vibrant neighborhoods. Luxury hotels surrounded by fine dining and gorgeous public art. Green spaces and an innovative spirit. It's for all these reasons and more that you should be planning your next meeting in San Francisco.
Think of the best cities in the United States. San Francisco inevitably comes to mind for meeting planners and it will for conference attendees, too. Announcing San Francisco as your meeting location will have attendees smiling over visions of the Golden Gate Bridge and cable cars. Exquisite dining and shopping will attract attendees to Union Square and Fisherman’s Wharf. Cultural attractions will stimulate visitors at Golden Gate Park, Chinatown, SoMa, and Japantown. The stunning beauty of our cityscape, including Coit Tower, the Palace of Fine Arts, Lombard Street, and Alcatraz, will leave attendees speechless.
San Francisco’s magnetic appeal makes it an ideal year-round destination to every type of event. The city’s allure, coupled with strong airlift into San Francisco International Airport, allows San Francisco to draw record-breaking attendance even in challenging economic times.
