Convention Center Description

The Center of It All

The Convention Center offers plenty of versatile space which can be configured to fit a variety of event needs, from tradeshows and corporate launches to general sessions and banquets and beyond. The Convention Center is networked with nearby venues to help events expand seamlessly into whatever environment your gathering requires. The Center can easily serve as the stand alone hub of your event or be combined with any number of other unique facilities. The compact campus feel of the Downtown core together with the access Team San Jose has to it, gives you spectacular flexibility in how you structure your event.

The Convention Center delivers state-of-the-art communications and the onsite qualified support personnel can assist with meeting webcasting, cyber cafe set up, satellite transmissions, video streaming and other technology that will make your event stand out and run smoothly.

Located in the Downtown core with its own parking garage, the Convention Center is connected to two hotels and within walking distance of 5 additional hotels, multiple visual and performing arts facilities and an abundance of restaurants. The Center and its surroundings are connected by public transportation including Light Rail, Caltrain and free Downtown shuttle.

Unique Differentiators

The main reason San Jose is great for meetings – and the reason 98 percent of planners say they’d return – can be summed up in three words: one stop service. Team San Jose – a CVB which manages the Convention Center and six unique theater and meeting venues -- handles it all, from housing, event services and customized menus to permits and marketing support. Whether it’s a small corporate or citywide group, San Jose offers the ease of booking the destination as if it were a big box hotel property. This saves the event planner valuable time, energy and resources, so they can focus on the success of the meeting and playing afterwards.

Another reason to meet here is our exciting and easy to navigate destination. San Jose, the Capital of Silicon Valley, entices delegates to stay and play after meetings with its walkable downtown bursting with historic California landmarks, engaging museums, theaters, galleries, restaurants, nightlife and live entertainment and events – all within walking distance of hotels and convention facilities. Nearby is the world-famous Winchester Mystery House and Santana Row, San Jose’s answer to Rodeo Drive but more accessible. San Jose also offers central and easy access to great city and Northern California attractions, such as world-class golf courses, wineries, Santa Cruz beaches, Monterey and San Francisco.

Experience why also selected San Jose as the most diverse metropolitan area, offering great dining and nightlife with renowned cultural attractions such as the Tech Museum of Innovation, Great America, Happy Hollow Park and Zoo, Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum and San Jose Museum of Art.
