San Jose is the heart of Silicon Valley. It’s a unique fusion of cutting-edge technology, global cultures, jaw-dropping nature, and a dynamic art scene. Event planners choose San Jose for the historic venues, helpful support team, easy transportation, and wide selection of hotel rooms. Guests thoroughly enjoy this city because there is so much to discover.
San Jose is one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the U.S. – and it’s reflected in our cuisine. A visit to San Jose makes it easy to indulge in authentic flavors and cooking styles from around the globe. Attendees can create their own food crawl through our cultural neighborhoods to sample Vietnamese, Portuguese, Indian, and Greek food. Or they can tour one of the few remaining U.S. Japantowns to sample handmade ramen, delicious donburi and fresh sushi.
Attendees don’t need to travel far to sample award-winning wine together. USA TODAY readers just voted San Jose’s Alamitos Vineyards the number one “Best New Winery Experience.” Additionally, at the 2023 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, Alamitos submissions won double golds, their highest award.
San Jose is home to exciting sports experiences. The San Jose Earthquakes shake the pitch with electrifying matches, but they won’t be the only ones playing the beautiful game. 2024 will be the inaugural season for Bay FC, San Jose’s new women’s soccer team. Attendees can also make the journey to Levi’s Stadium for 49ers football. For a cool group experience, they can catch a Sharks NHL game at the Downtown SAP Center.
Silicon Valley is surrounded by picturesque mountains, making San Jose a nature-lover’s playground. Visitors love the beautiful vistas and parks, and adventurers enjoy the endless hiking trails that fit any level of experience. Beginners enjoy the urban trails and scenic paths that lead to astounding city views, and more experienced hikers take on higher altitudes at Castle Rock State Park. All will enjoy the amazing salt flats of Alviso Marina County Park.
Of course, San Jose has opportunities for attendees to immerse themselves in innovative technology, including hands-on activities at The Tech Interactive – but the fun doesn’t end there. The Winchester Mystery House is a must-see for history buffs, architecture enthusiasts and mystery lovers alike. Puzzle fans won’t be able to resist trying to crack the code at the Adobe Semaphore, and devotees of the arts will want to explore the San Jose Museum of Art and the Institute of Contemporary Art San Jose.
