Now meeting planners and potential clients have a dynamic and helpful online tool to make planning, booking and visiting San Jose even easier. Team San Jose, the innovative operator of the city’s convention and cultural facilities, announced the launch of its new online tool that brings San Jose to life in 3-D.

The new online platform is an innovative tool to help visitors and meeting planners play, explore and discover how close hotels and Mineta San Jose International Airport are located to the San Jose McEnery Convention Center, as well as an in-depth look at meeting set-up options each facility offers so that planners can find the best fit for their event. The interactive website also demonstrates what San Jose offers attendees and visitors who want to play between or after meetings, from attractions within walking distance to the convention center to great resorts and shopping options.

“Creating technological advances such as this new interactive online resource is just one of the ways that Team San Jose continues to push the envelope to serve our clients and provide an outstanding experience for visitors,” said Bill Sherry, CEO of Team San Jose. “The new web tool embodies the character of San Jose’s innovative community and makes visiting and booking San Jose that much easier.”
