Good News!

With California and Santa Clara county fully reopened, we're excited to host you, once again. When you meet in San Jose you'll find new and historic hotels, our GBAC-certified convention center and a vibrant, diverse community with a walkable downtown that's full of dining and entertainment options where safety is a priority. California's guidelines to bring large meetings back are summarized below: 

  • Outdoor gatherings are allowed to return to usual operations with the only exception being Mega Events (10,000 or more).
  • Indoor activities are allowed to return to usual operations with the only exception being Mega Events (5,000 or more).
  • We are very excited to announce that all Mega Events will be returning starting October 1, 2021. 

California has fully opened its economy - including our ability to host meetings and conventions. San Jose is taking the extra step to ensure your safety with additional precautions, including a vaccine policy to enter city-owned buildings.

Please contact the sales team to learn more about our state-of-the-art safety protocols and procedures.
